explanation: NHL department of player safety assumes all disciplinary oversight of the Memorial Cup + supervision of the officials. NHL reviewed the penalty and deemed Owen eligible for Game 1 of the Memorial Cup https://t.co/DYs9LQSxJe

In match #5 of the OHL final between Peterborough and London, Owen Beck was ejected from the game for a dangerous leg-crunch on the Knights’ Jackson Edward.
After seeing his club take top honors in Game 6, one might have expected Beck to have to serve the second game of his suspension at the Memorial Cup… But not so fast.
The NHL… In junior field hockey. You read that correctly.
George Parros and his team reviewed Owen Beck’s suspension, and decided to reduce it by one game.
Owen Beck will therefore be eligible to play in his team’s first game of the Memorial Cup, against the Seattle Thunderbirds on Saturday.
He’ll face a team loaded with NHL prospects, including Brad Lambert, Kevin Korchinski, Dylan Guenther, Luke Prokop and Thomas Milic.
