Illegal hit that knocked out and bloodied goalie is 1st test for league’s new discipline committee
The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League has handed down the longest suspension given to one of its players in recent memory.
Yorkton Terriers forward Greg Mulhall has been suspended 25 games for bowling over Melville Millionaires’ goaltender Berk Berkeliev in a game between the long-time rival teams Saturday night in Melville.
Video of the incident showed the two players racing from opposite directions for a loose puck in the Melville zone before Mulhall lowered his shoulder and knocked Berkeliev flat on his back, sending the goaltender’s helmet flying in the process.
