The NHLPA announced Carcillo has requested the NHL to review his suspension for abusing linesman Scott Driscoll during Game 3 on Thursday night.
In order for Carcillo to challenge the ban he has to go right to the top. That means it’ll be NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman hearing his case. According to Rule 40.5, the Rangers forward had 72-hours from the announcement of the suspension to request the review.
No date or time has been scheduled for the appeal, but expect it to come about sooner than not with Game 4 taking place on Sunday night.
Appeals in the past have not gone well for the players challenging the league ruling. Shawn Thornton‘s 15-game suspension earlier this season was upheld by Bettman. Patrick Kaleta‘s 10-game suspension was also upheld by the commissioner.
Phoenix Coyotes forward Paul Bissonnette was successful in appealing his 10-game suspension for leaving the bench to start a fight. Bissonnette’s suspension was reduced to three games because there was a lack of video evidence to uphold his full punishment.
