Largest Suspension In League History Handed Out To USHL Defenseman Following Disgusting Slash

Largest Suspension In League History Handed Out To USHL Defenseman Following Disgusting Slash

BY GRAHAM MONTGOMERY    FEBRUARY 9, 2024  (8:14 PM)
Everyone knows that hockey is a dangerous sport. Accidents happen and injuries are often unavoidable. However, sometimes players simply lose their minds and do violence on the ice for no reason other than to cause harm to another player. This is exactly what happened recently in the USHL.

USHL Hands Out Longest Suspension In League History



Omaha Lancers defenseman David Posma was in a tough situation earlier this week when Sioux City Musketeers forward Kaden Shahan has gotten past the defense with an empty net. Surely he would score to secure the victory for Sioux City. However, before he could do that, Posma decided it was a good time to slash Shahan repeatedly until he gave up his pursuit of the empty net goal. The play was completely unnecessary and especially violent, with clear intention to injure the Musketeers forward.

Omaha's David Posma has been suspended 17 games for slashing Kaden Shahan. It is the longest suspension ever in the USHL.




Posma Becomes Repeat Offender With New Suspension From USHL



This is not the first time Posma has gotten himself in trouble for this kind of behavior either. He has already been suspended multiple times this season, including once for illegal head contact.

He's been suspended multiple times this year already. Once for head contact and not sure what the other ones were or what you are referring to but I'm sure he did that too


By the time Posma's current suspension expires, the Lancers will have just seven games left in the season. Hopefully he will be able to get through those games without another unacceptable incident.
