No more Shootouts in NLA Playoffs?

 

According to blick.ch the National League Clubs and the Swiss Ice Hockey League want to get rid of the Shootout during future Playoffs. Team Managers from SC Bern, ZCS Lions or the Kloten Flyers have made statements all pointing in the same direction. André Rötheli, Team Manager for the Flyers mentioned that “maybe the Shootout would have to be limited to decisive games during the Playofffs”.

 

The League and the Clubs will come together in June at their regular Assembly and discuss further. The League would require a 2/3 majority to introduce a new format which would see Playoff games being played in an overtime until the first goal is scored, similar to how the NHL plays now.

 

A few questions remain though. Concerns were raised as to how the Swiss Television (SRF) would react to this decision and if they might take any steps to intervene with the Swiss Ice Hockey League due to time constraints on TV-Time that may occur.

 

There are many points to be discussed but it’s going in the right direction. From many athletes point of view, a decision by Shootout isn’t justified and they would rather have a game winning goal scored during an overtime. Same goes for the Club owners and Managers.

 

It remains to be seen if the fans and TV viewers will embrace the idea should it get a majority of the votes.

Taticek suspended after attacking linesman in game 2 of 1/4 final series against Kloten

According to the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation, Reto Steinmann, judge for the National League decided to hand out a 7 game suspension and a fine of CHF 1'500 to HC Davos player Petr Taticek after his attack on the linesman before starting a brawl with Micki Dupont of the Kloten Flyers. He points
out that Taticeks behaviour saw the linesman as an object in his way and pushed him away. As a consequence, the linesman fell to the ice but wasn't injured.


As attacks on officials are recognised as a crass offence, the judge saw his decision justified. Taticek will be available to
play for his team in the semifinals at the earliest.

Both teams meet again on Saturday in Kloten for the 3rd game, Davos leads 2:0.
