Antti Tyrvainen Suspended Two Games By AHL

There’s been a kneeing incident involving Jordan Eberle with no suspension. A near head shot by Taylor Hall, and again no suspension. But today, the American Hockey League announced that winger, Antti Tyrvainen, has been suspended two games for an interference incident. Okay then.

The official release:

The American Hockey League today announced that Oklahoma City Barons left wing Antti Tyrvainen has been suspended for two (2) games as a consequence of an interference incident during a game vs. Milwaukee on Nov. 16.

Tyrvainen will miss Oklahoma City’s games Wednesday (Nov. 21) at Texas and Saturday (Nov. 24) at Charlotte.

Suspended for an interference incident is the strangest wording for a two game suspendable situation. Wasn’t a head shot. Wasn’t an illegal check. But it was a mid-ice slam, with the puck nowhere in the viewing frame, that resulted in an injury to Milwaukee Ads player, Kevin Anderson.

And so the oddity of penalty distribution continues.

And if you needed more proof that the Ads vs. Barons series was a rough one, Gabriel Bourque was suspended two games for an illegal check to the head in Oklahoma City on Saturday.

The official release:

The American Hockey League today announced that Milwaukee Admirals left wing Gabriel Bourque has been suspended for two (2) games as a consequence of an illegal check to the head of an opponent during a game at Oklahoma City on Nov. 17.

Bourque will miss Milwaukee’s games Tuesday (Nov. 20) at Chicago and Friday (Nov. 23) at Peoria.
