Alex Burrows accepts 10-game suspension without appeal

Alex Burrows

Alex Burrows announced on Thursday that he will accept the NHL’s 10-game suspension for his actions against Taylor Hall rather than exercise his right to appeal.

Burrows was handed a 10-game suspension on Wednesday for kneeing Hall in Ottawa’s game against the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.

Burrows kneed Hall repeatedly and excessively, which is why the league disciplined him.

Burrows had 48 hours to decide whether to appeal but decided to accept the suspension.

The Senators winger will lose around $134K due to the suspension. He has been suspended once and fined multiple times by the league in the past. Burrows is also known for his antics in the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals when he bit Patrice Bergeron.
