Carl Hagelin Suspension: Rangers 'Thoroughly Perplexed' By NHL Decision

The New York Rangers are not happy with the NHL's decision to suspend Carl Hagelin. The forward will sit for Games 3, 4 and 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals after his Game 2 elbow to the head of Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson. Alfredsson left that game and did not return, and his status is unknown for the remainder of the series.

The organization released comment to the media following the announced decision on Sunday evening.

The New York Rangers accept the NHL's three-game suspension of Carl Hagelin and will not pursue an appeal.

However, we are thoroughly perplexed in the ruling's inconsistency with other supplementary discipline decisions that have been made throughout this season and during the playoffs.

We will have no further comment on this decision.
