Two-game ban for Em­bach

Paisley Daily Express - - Theti Cket - Ice hockey

Brae­head Clan’s Mike Em­bach will be sus­pended for the side’s week­end clashes with Ed­in­burgh Cap­i­tals and Fife Fly­ers.

Em­bach has been charged un­der Rule 124 – check­ing to the head or neck.

The EIHL’s Depart­ment of Player Safety re­ceived a re­quest from the Sh­effield Steel­ers to review an in­ci­dent in­volv­ing Em­bach from Sun­day’s game be­tween the two sides.

Em­bach was handed a two minute penalty for el­bow­ing in the first pe­riod of the clash south of the bor­der, but has now been cited for fur­ther pu­n­ish­ment.

Us­ing the ref­eree’s re­port and the video footage, the Depart­ment of Player Safety has up­graded the penalty to a match penalty for check­ing to the head un­der IIHF Rule 124.

A match penalty car­ries an au­to­matic one game ban, and the Depart­ment of Player Safety has added an ad­di­tional one game ban fol­low­ing the review, there­fore Em­bach will miss two games.
