Beauchemin & Jacques have disciplinary hearings today

Posted: 01/09/2012 by bc in Uncategorized

Update: J.F. Jacques received a 3 game suspension for his umbrage upon Umberger. Francois Beauchemin was not sanctioned for his hit on Carter.

tsn.ca is reporting that the league is investigating the hits on Jeff Carter and R.J. Umberger delivered by Francois Beauchemin and J.F. Jacques, respectively.
J.F. should bring his checkbook to the hearing and be prepared for another extended stint in Syracuse as well as accruing more frequent flyer miles. On the other hand, Beauch has an argument. He’s not a repeat offender and Carter’s dislocated shoulder suggests that Frankie didn’t target the head. I’m loathe to predict what judges, hearing officers and juries might do BUT Frankie does have a case at least.
