For the second time this season a NHL player has been suspended for stomping on a downed opponent.  Chris Pronger of the Anaheim Ducks has been suspended for 8 games after stomping on the calf of Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Kesler.

It is the eight time Pronger has been suspended, but doubles his previously longest suspension of 4 games.  Chris Simon was recently suspended 30 games for a similar action but has a much worse history.

I feel that this it should have been a little longer, but I am glad the NHL didn’t give less than 5 games like many suggested.  It is still a vicious act that could one day lead to a terrible injury.
