Brendan Lemieux won't be suspendedMarch 15, 2019 | 04:10 AM
Brendan Lemieux will not be suspended for his match penalty hit on Antoine Roussel Wednesday.
As a matter of fact, the NHL apologized to the Rangers as Lemieux did not hit Roussel, rather, Roussel fell on his own. The match penalty will not be rescinded as those penalties do not accumulate for suspensions as far as the NHL is concerned. Lemieux has two goals and five points in eight games with New York as well as 29 penalty minutes which includes the 10 he picked up against the Canucks.
