Forward Miles Wood has been suspended one game by Hockey East for his boarding penalty on Monday night versus Boston University.
Obviously, I do not agree with the suspension but I completely understand why the league issued this punishment. Wood, as good as he has been for the Eagles, has had some issues with staying out of the box dating back to last season at Nobles where he was suspended for getting thrown out of multiple games. Over the past few weeks, Wood has done a much better job of avoiding the sin bin but I think his emotions might have gotten the best of him in this moment and because of that, he will be out of the lineup on Friday night.
On another note, I hope Hockey East takes a look at Mike Moran's vicious slash that forced Josh Couturier to lay on the ice for a few minutes. I don't know how the referees missed that call.
