Ducharme Suspended


Not in the least bit surprised by this.

April 11-SJHL suspends La Ronge Ice Wolves forward Justin Ducharme two games after he received a major penalty causing injury during a game against Yorkton April 10

It wasn't a malicious hit, but it was dangerous.  This pretty much goes in line with taking him out for the final game and should the Wolves move on, only one game of the Anavet Cup.  It's tough for the Ice Wolves to be without Ducharme, but I would imagine Phil Cliché will be inserted into the lineup to fill that roster spot.  Hopefully returning to the lineup will give him the spark and hunger that he just hadn't seemed to display through the playoffs.

If anyone thinks Ducharme should have gotten a longer suspension, I would put forward that sparking the Terriers comeback in Game 6 is more than enough punishment for him.  Tough way for a tough season to end for Ducharme.  Tough way for a season to end for Decker.
