Wideman suspended 20 games by the NHL
The verdict is in and it’s not good news for Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman. He’s been suspended 20 games by the NHL for running over a referee during a match between the Flames and the Nashville Predators on January 27.
Here’s a video of the incident:
Wideman have 2 goals and 17 assists in 48 games this season for the Flames.
This should serve as an example that you should never touch a referee during a game.
