Breaking News: Brett Connolly has been suspended 4 games

Brett Connolly

Brett Connolly has received a 4 game suspension from the NHL following a dirty hit to Dallas’s Tanner Kero. It was a scary sight to see and a sight that is not too unusual for the Blackhawks, who had Jujar Khaira get injured in a similar manner a few games ago. 

Connolly is not a dirty player just made a bad call on this play. Connolly thought the defenseman was moving the puck up the boards to the winger on a break-out pass and went to make a hit. Dallas defenseman decided just to dump the puck out instead. Kero, who was not trying to play the puck and was not expecting to get hit and was defenseless in the open ice, took a devastating hit from Connolly. You would not expect this from Connolly, even though the Dallas coach spoke on it afterward. Rick Bowness said, “I know he’s not a dirty player. I coached him in Tampa, and he’s a great kid. Brett Connolly would never intentionally hurt someone, so I don’t hold that against him.” And this is supported even more by Chicago’s head coach Derek King who said Connolly was “shaken up.” 

Connolly still deserves the 4 game suspension that the NHL has decided to hand down, even with taking all of that in. This play should not have happened, and Connolly should have made a better decision at the moment. Let’s all wish Tanner Kero a speedy recovery from his injuries, and hopefully, we don’t see another one of these any time soon.

Born and raised in Florida. My mom was raised on the south side of Chicago that's where my Blackhawks fandom comes from. I have played hockey my whole life, including losing in the National Championship game in 2010 with the Gulf Coast Flames. I love hockey and the NHL.

One thought on “Breaking News: Brett Connolly has been suspended 4 games”

  1. YES Keep the suspension Not dirty but he is responsible.. I agree. Hockey players cannot skate into players and serious injury occur without NHL taken action. . WE see more and more of this .. slam nets – crash nets .. Crash into players, Injure players and call it a mistake… IT leaves to many doors for more violence and try and not stand up for the Penalties and the injury Neglectful safety factors.. Part of the game.. The players must stand up for the honor of the game and the Future safety of all players… NOTE. To many times Goalies are crashed into stepped on ,and face injury.. Players need to STOP acting like they cannot handle the speed .. THINK and maybe the nets will not move and players will not fall on our goalies. Brett Connelly might not have meant it but it happened~ The call was a good one a suspension by the NHL. The players all need to be protected… A wake up call to all Hockey Players.. Thinking on the Ice part of a Smart Hockey Player~
