10/31/14 | 2PM: John Moore met with the media on Friday to discuss his suspension as well as his hit on Erik Haula (NYR)
  • I respect the leagues decision. The only thing for me to do is move forward. I am never trying to intentionally hurt someone. I am trying to go through the body, it's a tough hit to make, it's a fast play. I need to be physical but there is that line and right there I crossed it. I never intentionally mean to hurt anyone, I respect my opponents. It's a privilege to play in this league, I just gotta be smarter, I crossed the line there."
  • On his call with Haula, "I called him to let him know where I was coming from and that I wasn't trying to intentionally injure him and he was very receptive and very classy."
  • On not playing the next five games, "it's hard but again, there is no one to blame but myself. Those are hits that I can't make. I can't stress enough that the intent wasn't, I wasn't going out looking to injure people. I am looking to be physical and make a defensive play and I missed him."
  • On being suspended twice, "I need to be physical but that hit there crossed the line and it can't happen. I need to be smarter in the sense that it can't happen again, where I am missing a player. It's a fast gaem and I need to bring that element but also be aware a little more.

5:02PM: John Moore has been suspended 5 games by the NHL Department of Player Safety for his hit on Erik Haula on Monday. (Bob McKenzie)Moore can return on 11/11 against Pittsburgh. Because Moore had an in-person hearing the NHL had the option to suspend Moore for 6 or more games. Had Moore been suspended for 6 or Moore games, the CBA states (18.13) that he could have appealed to an independent arbitrator.

In describing the suspension, the NHL's Department of Player Safety video said, "Monday night in New York Rangers defenseman John Moore was assessed a match penalty for a hit to the head that injured Minnesota Wild Erik Haula. Off a turnover in the neutral zone, Haula is supporting a rush from Nino Niederritor as Moore races to get back into the play. After taking a drop pass, left shooting Haula snaps a shot at the net as Moore closes in from his right."

They add, "Just after Haula releases the puck, Moore drives into him forcefully with his left shoulder. While initial contact is made with Haula's shoulder, the main point of contact on this hit is Haula's head. This is an illegal check to the head. It is important to note that Haula is eligible to be checked on the play and Moore's hit is not late. Nor did Moore deliver the hit with his elbow which flairs up during contact, however, if Moore is to attempt this extremely difficult hit, his timing and angle of approach must ensure that he hits squarely through the body and that Haula's head is not the main point of contact. Moore does neither. Haula's head absorbs the brunt of Moore's shoulder and how Haula spins to the ice is a clear indication that this hit was not square through the body."

John Moore has his hearing with the NHL at the NHL office this afternoon to discuss his hit on Erik Haula Monday night.

Because Moore was offered an in-person hearing the league has the option to suspend him for 6 or more games.

Asked about John Moore and being a repeat offender, Pierre LeBrun on TSN 690 last night, "that is precisely why I think he is? in trouble. Because of the recent history and the dangerous hit, one of the things that player safety, at least under Shanny, is trying to curb your behavior and if you keep ending up in our offices you aren?t understanding out message so maybe we need to make the message stronger. Aside from the fact that John Moore?s hit last night was pretty dangerous, I think the fact that he just had a dangerous hit in the playoffs and he is already back in the hot chair, I think that is why I think he is facing between 4 and 7 games."

John Moore has been suspended two games after his hit on Dale Weise last night. (Bob McKenzie)

The video from the NHL says, "Tuesday night in Montreal John Moore delivered an illegal check to the head of Dale Weise. Weise carries the puck through the neutral zone as Moore tracks him through the middle of the ice on the backcheck. After Weise passes the puck to a teammate, Moore drives up and into Weise delivering a hit that makes his head the main point of contact. This is an illegal check to the head."

They add "Weise is eligible to be checked on the play as the release of the puck and the moment of contact is within established NHL standards however it is important to note that Weise makes no sudden movements prior to or simultaneous with the hit that contribute to his head being the main point of contact. Therefore the onus is on Moore to make sure that he delivers a full body check that does not make Weise's head the main point of contact."

12:05PM: Alain Vigneault said this morning (via the NHL):

  • "Yeah, but league standard, and I know the league standard very well because a couple years ago in the Boston series against my former team in Vancouver, and it doesn't meet the league standard as far as a late hit.? It was a hit that Johnny caught him a little high in the chest, player didn't see it coming.? It probably warrants the penalty that was given on the ice.? Other than that, I don't see what else it could warrant, but I've been surprised before.? We'll see what happens."
  • "Well, the player didn't see him coming, obviously, but the guy was admiring his pass a little bit at the same time.? Unfortunately, it was a hit in the head because of the force of the hit, the head seemed to snap back a little bit.? But as far as what I know about league standards and from what I heard from the Prust hit where the dynamics of the hit changed because Stepan was hurt, I don't see that at this time right now."
  • "We're not there yet.? I don't expect anything. "
10:35AM the hearing is for 2:30PM (Katie Strang)

7:28AM: "I don't think John Moore's hit was as late as Brandon Prust's hit was but it was still late and the NHL has the technology to determine that. There was an injury on the play but Weise came back as did Stepan, Stepan ended up with a broken jaw and now we will find out of Weise is and if he is they will tack on the extra game. For me, it's probably a 0-1 game and I think everyone can live with one game and if there is an injury that takes Weise out perhaps they add another one.? (Darren Dreger on Leafs Breakfast)

9:56PM: In the first period, Moore spoke with John Giannone and said:

  • On his confidence after scoring, ?It?s huge. Going into this game, six games without playing, to score on my first shift, it?s big.?
  • On the goal ?Zucc found me cross ice and when I first got this puck my first thought was to come down the wall and then I saw the guy in the lane try to get back and Brass had a great screen and it found it?s way in.
  • On the higher altitude, ?for sure. You are feeling it early in the shifts and as a group I think we got in trouble when we were extending our shifts. ?it?s a factor and something to keep an eye on
5PM: With the injury to Ryan McDonagh, John Moore will return to the Rangers lineup for the first time since suffering concussion symptoms on 3/18 against Columbus.

Earlier in the week it was noted that Moore needed one more practice and then it would be up to Alain Vigneault when he returned.
