Grabovski Suspended 3 Games for Official Abuse

mikhail-grabovski-150After circling and exchanging words with Sergei Kostitsyn last night, Montreal Canadiens’ reject Mikhail Grabovski ended up tussling and getting lightly tackled by a linesman, shoving and grabbing at the offical’s sweater simaltaneously and ending up with a heavy-handed suspension.

Abuse of an Official is an automatic suspension in the NHL rulebook and Grabovski looked like a goon out there, getting far more emotional then was necessary given that he was being held back. He also made a few rude gestures to the Montreal crowd as he skated off the ice after receiving his misconduct.

Sergei has said publically that the feud will continue with his fellow Belarussian; Grabovski and the Kostitsyn brothers represent the only current NHL players from Belarus.
