Ice hockey: RIN rejects the appeal against Kalle Östman’s suspension

Play sand writes on his website that RIN “does not make any other assessment than the Disciplinary Committee and therefore chooses to reject the appeal”.

This means that Kalle’s suspension is permanent and extends over a possible first semi-final match.

It was in the fifth quarter-final match against Frölunda that Östman ran over an assistant referee. According to the verdict, the player could have done more to avoid the collision.

Tonight, Leksand’s fate will be decided in “game 7”.
