Asham feels four-game ban is harsh
By QMI AGENCY
Arron Asham of the Pittsburgh Penguins said Thursday his four-game suspension for cross-checking Philadelphia Flyer Brayden Schenn in the face was stiffer than he expected.
"I was surprised by the number of games," Asham told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I thought (Nicklas) Backstrom's was a lot worse."
The Washington Capitals' Backstrom got a one-game ban for cross-checking Boston Bruin Rich Peverley in the face.
