The Disciplinary Committee investigated the MOL League game MOL 157 (Ferencvarosi TC – DVTK Jegesmedvek) where Henrich JABORNIK player of Ferencvarosi TC was being penalized 10 + 20 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior (MISC, GA-MI). The Committee made the following conclusions:
IIHF RULE 168 – UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT
DEFINITION: A player or team official who commits a violation of the rules pertaining to sportsmanship, fair play, and respect. Misconduct Penalty - If a violation is flagrant or if a player continues his unsportsmanlike conduct, he may be assessed a misconduct penalty. Game-Misconduct Penalty - A player or team official who uses obscene, profane, or abusive language directed to any person on the ice or anywhere in the rink for which he has already been assessed a minor or bench-minor penalty will be assessed a game-misconduct penalty. When this type of conduct occurs after expiration of the game, on or off the ice, the game-misconduct penalty can be applied without the necessity of having previously assessed a minor or bench-minor penalty.
According to the Disciplinary Committee's opinion, the player behaved unsportsmanlike against the referee.
The Disciplinary Commitee approve the referee’s judgement, and do not use other sanctions.
During the season for the Ferencvarosi TC player this is the second time a Game Misconduct (GA-MI) penalty was impossed.
