Ryan Reaves suspended one game for head shot on Tyler Motte

Just in from DoPS: the Vegas Golden Knights will be without Ryan Reaves for one game. Following his hearing with the NHL department of player safety on Saturday, the Knights forward will miss Game 1 his team’s conference final series with the Dallas Stars.

From the NHL:

The department makes it clear that Reaves made the head the main point of contact despite it being avoidable. “While we accept Reaves’ argument that he does not intend to hit Tyler Motte in the head,” the league says and then describes how Reaves did nothing to avoid exactly that happening.

Reaves, 33, has been an off-ice leader, but has just four points in 15 postseason games.
