McKay suspended for two games

Stars defenseman receives suspension

On Saturday night at the Vindico Arena, Stars defenceman Chris McKay made an illegal cross check on Devils Forward Josh Waller..

As the video shows, McKay and Waller are in a battle for a loose puck with Waller in front of McKay and focussed on the puck. McKay, with two hands on his stick, draws back and then extends forwards striking Waller. This is Cross Checking.

While it is acknowledged this isn’t a cross check meant to harm or injure his opponent, it is also not a routine movement to box out an opponent or to gain body position. McKay raises his stick significantly and creates this contact. This is a high cross check that makes contact with an opponent's head and neck with sufficient force to warrant supplemental discipline.

To Summarise:

  • Cross Checking
  • Apparent Injury - Waller did not return to the game
  • No History. McKay has neither been fined or suspended during the EIHL 2023/24 season

Effective immediately Dundee Stars #55 Chris McKay is fined and suspended for two games.
