Sixteen years ago(1994) the Florida Panthers made him the first overall pick of the NHL Draft. From AP-
Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Ed Jovanovski has been suspended two games by the NHL for an elbow hit to the head of New York Islanders rookie John Tavares.
The suspension, announced Monday, is Jovanovski’s second of the season. He was also penalized two games on Dec. 9.
Jovanovski hit Tavares with 17 seconds left in the first period of the Coyotes’ 5-4 shootout loss on Saturday night, and was assessed a major for elbowing and a game misconduct.
Here’s the video.
No question in my mind about the hit being intentional. Hits to the head can be dangerous, and that’s why players like Jovanovski are suspended for them. He deserves the penalty handed down to him for his hit on John Tavares.
