Bruins Rival Gets Screwed Over By NHL Player Safety

Published February 14, 2024 at 9:33 PM

Earlier today, Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brad Treliving skipped his expected press conference regarding defenseman Morgan Rielly's suspension.

Rielly received a five-game ban for cross-checking Ottawa Senators' Ridly Greig in the head during Saturday's game.

The incident, occurring in the match's final moments, sparked heated debate. Rielly plans to appeal directly to NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.

Reports suggest the Leafs are upset about how they learned of the ban, leaked before official notification.

This unprecedented twist in NHL discipline underscores Rielly's first career suspension, with a potential appeal looming over procedural irregularities.
