Michael Peca Suspended Indefinitely for Bumping Referre

Apparently, during Friday night's Blue Jackets game against the Stars, Peca grabbed an official that was skating away from him while arguing a call. He is now suspended until further investigation by the league. All signs are point to at least a twenty game suspension for Peca due to the intentional contact with the referee.

This seems rather unorthodox for Peca because he is a mild-mannered player and showed those characteristics during his career as a Sabre. This incident came after Mike Ribero apparently tripped Peca on a 5-3 and then scored a goal seconds later. This prompted Peca to skate to the official behind the net and grabbed the official when he skated away.
