The CHL suspended Komets defenseman Brent Henley one game for kneeing Collin Circelli of Rapid City in Game 4 of the Turner Conference semifinals, a 5-3 victory by Fort Wayne.
Henley will have to sit out Sunday's game at Memorial Coliseum. The Komets have 3-1 lead and a win would advance them to the conference finals against Missouri.
Henley had been back in the lineup only two games after serving a three-game suspension for sucker-punching Damien Surma and kneeing Brett Lutes in a game at Dayton?
Would do I think? I would have gone with a fine. He does get him at the knee area, but he had the puck and Henley is seven inches taller. Unfortunately for Henley, he's on the disciplinary radar right now. This is one of those plays that looked fine in real time but when you really slow it down, it looks less so.
