The IIHF Disciplinary Board has issued one-game suspensions to Swiss players Rodwin Dionicio and Noah Greuter due to incidents at the 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games’ men’s ice hockey tournament.

After the loss in the last preliminary-round game against Finland, both Dionicio and Greuter had altercations with opposing players and violated Rule 141 (fighting). In the case of Dionicio he also head-butted his opponent (Rule 142) while Greuter instigated a fight despite the linesman trying to break up the pushing and shoving.

The incidents happened after the final buzzer but before the players left the ice.

The Deciding Panel considers a suspension according to Rule 110 ii. for one game as adequate and sufficient in both cases.

Both players will be suspended for Switzerland’s first game at the next IIHF Ice Hockey U18 World Championship.
