NHL rescinds game misconduct to Lucic
The Game Misconduct penalty assessed to Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic during the Canucks game today in Boston has been rescinded, National Hockey League Senior Vice President and Director of Officiating Terry Gregson announced today.
Lucic was assessed a Game Misconduct 3:54 into the first period for violating National Hockey League Rule 70.1 – Leaving the Bench.
Video review of the incident revealed that Lucic did not leave the bench to join or start an altercation but rather had entered the ice legally over the boards and was about to step back onto the bench through the door when he changed course and joined a scrum.
And he escapes the automatic 10 game ban Todd Bertuzzi picked up against Colorado back in the day.
