As usual, here's Shanahan's video explaining it.
This video has a lot of the same verbage we've heard from Shanny this season. Going into the slot, Umberger can expect a good check, but should not expect one to the head and in this case that was the principal point of contact.
"J.F. hit a player that was vulnerable after shooting the puck, and he needs to be more aware in those situations," Ducks GM Bob Murray said. "We accept the league's ruling and will move forward."
Leading to part of the three-game punishment is the fact that Jacques was handed a suspension in the preseason too.
That was just the first of two hearings on the day for Ducks players. The one a bit more concerning to Ducks fans was a hearing for defenseman Francois Beauchemin for his hit that left Jeff Carter with a separated shoulder.
Shanahan elected to come down with no additional punishment for Beauchemin, be it a suspension or a fine. That's the good news in it all for Anaheim.
