According to Columbus Blue Jackets insider Aaron Portzline, the National Hockey League has informed the team that 24-year-old center Boone Jenner's game misconduct has been rescinded.
This decision comes just a day after Jackets' head coach John Tortorella made pretty rough comments towards the league:
“Get out of the way, and let the players decide the games,” Tortorella complained, according to Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “That’s what [stinks]. It’s just frustrating. There are some really good players out there. It’s a highly competitive game. I think a little bit of rivalry is coming into play here. Get out of the way, and let the players decide.”
Boone Jenner was assessed a 5 minute major and game misconduct for slashing Jake Guentzel in the face, and it was unclear whether or not that punishment was warranted. You can take a look at the sequence:
Jenner recorded 10 points and 29 penalty minutes in 29 games this season.
