After seven hours of hearings in New York City and seven days of waiting in Calgary, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has announced his verdict on the Dennis Wideman suspension appeal.

Bettman has upheld Wideman’s 20-game ban, originally dealt by NHL director of hockey operations Colin Campbell, after weighing the lengthy appeal heard one week ago today.

The message has been reinforced: Do not hit an official, under any circumstances.
