ECHL: Allen Americans Spencer Asuchak Suspended

The ECHL has announced that Allen Americans forward Spencer Asuchuk has been suspended two games and fined an undisclosed amount for his actions during Wednesday Night’s game. Asuchuk cross-checked Idaho Steelheads defencemen Cody Haiskanen into the boards at the 19:02 mark of the first period. He was assessed a minor penalty for boarding on the play. The BC native will miss Games 2 and 3 against Idaho. Asuchuk was limited to only five games this season due to an injury he suffered earlier in the season. However, he spent the season as the Americans’ player/assistant coach. The 31-year-old forward spent the 2021-22 season as the Americans’ Captain, putting up 27 goals and 34 assists for 61 points in 68 games and picking up 128 minutes in penalties. Asuchuk has spent ten years playing in the ECHL as he’s put up 129 goals and 187 assists for 316 points in 423 regular season games, he’s added 24 goals and 28 assists for 52 points in 81 Kelly Cup Playoff games. Justin Young will likely take his spot in the lineup; Young had a goal and six assists in 51 games during the regular season and has an assist in seven Kelly Cup games this season.
