With all eyes now concentrated on the 2011 Conference Finals, the NHL has momentarily directed its attention to some unfinished business. The league had been receiving numerous reports regarding a Philadelphia Flyers athlete who played in the playoffs.

The NHL has announced a two-game suspension next season for Flyers forward, Dan Carcillo. The Flyers enforcer was penalized for supposedly being involved in a heated argument with game officials during Game 4 of the Bruins and Flyers playoff series.

During the end of the first and second period of Game 4, Dan Carcillo was reported to be found outside the officials’ locker room. Instead of bullying the Bruins players, Carcillo did not use good judgment at the time and continued to harass the officials and linesmen refereeing the game. What a nut job!

The league had punished Carcillo based on the below statements:

“Between the first and second period, while off ice and outside the officials’ locker room, Mr. Carcillo engaged in aggressive behavior and inappropriate conduct directed at the officials. While Mr. Carcillo acknowledged in the hearing that he regrets his actions outside of the officials’ room, there can be no defense for his conduct.”

The surprising twist is that Dan Carcillo will be a free agent in the upcoming season, which means the team that signs the forward will have to live with the consequences for the first two games. Good luck with that!
