Anybody else see the cheap cross check to scott parkers mouth by duvie westcott at the end of the blue jackets game?
Blue Jackets defenseman Duvie Westcott was fined $1,000 by the NHL today -- but not suspended -- for his blow to the face of Colorado winger Scott Parker.
NHL VP Colin Campbell took into account that Westcott has no previous record with the league and has never been suspended. Westcott explained his view of the situation with Campbell, that he merely lifted his hands and stick in the air to defend himself. Campbell must have believed him.
Westcott is eligible to play Wednesday when the Blue Jackets host Dallas.
