BAN FOR KELSEY WILSON
December 28, 2012
Nottingham Panthers forward Kelsey Wilson will be banned for three matches following a supplementary discipline review by the Rapid Solicitors Elite League disciplinary committee.
Wilson was assessed a 5+game penalty for slashing in the first period (15:34) of Thursday's game between Sheffield and Nottingham.
Following a request by the Steelers, the committee has reviewed the game DVD and the incident has been upgraded to a match penalty.
Head of discipline, Simon Kirkham, said: "This is a nasty slash by Wilson and the committee has decided to apply a match penalty.
"The minimum tariff for such an offence is three matches and cannot appealed against."
Wilson will miss Panthers' home game with Dundee Stars tomorrow (Saturday), followed by back-to-back clashes with Coventry Blaze the following weekend.
