Instigators and Preseason Player Safety

Scouting The Refs

About the Episode

The puck drops on the preseason with our first suspension and fine as Player Safety is already on duty. It’s a $5k punch from Petry, 2 games for Melanson, a first for the Seattle Kraken, and two fights — along with our first instigator penalty. Todd and Josh discuss whether another was warranted, and if the NHL should consider a different approach when it comes to the 2-5-10 of an instigator penalty… listen in and let us know your take.
