Thornton appealing NHL suspension

TORONTO (AP) — Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton is appealing his 15-game suspension for punching and injuring unsuspecting Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik.

Thornton’s agent, Anton Thun, confirmed in an email that his client was appealing. The NHL Players’ Association announced it had informed the league of that plan before the 48-hour deadline to do so passed.

Thornton got 15 games for slew-footing Orpik to the ice and landing gloved punches to his head during a game Dec. 7. The Pittsburgh defenseman was knocked unconscious and has not played since because of a concussion.

Thornton had not been fined or suspended before. Several general managers and coaches around the NHL have spoken in support of Thornton’s character in his career before this incident.

He apologized for his actions after the game.
