Human piece of shit Zac Rinaldo continues to find himself in trouble with the league. In this case, the league is the AHL, as Rinaldo was playing for the Providence Bruins on Friday night whilst serving a five-game suspension in The Shield for do something predictably crummy.
Now he’s got two five-game suspensions.
The American Hockey League today announced that Providence Bruins left wing Zac Rinaldo has been suspended for five (5) games as a consequence of his match penalty for an illegal check to the head of an opponent in a game vs. Bridgeport on Mar. 4.
Rinaldo has already served two games of the suspension. He will also miss Providence’s games Friday (Mar. 11) vs. Hartford, Saturday (Mar. 12) vs. Toronto and Sunday (Mar. 13) vs. Utica.
Rinaldo was given the third NHL suspension of his career Tuesday, and was promptly put on waivers, which he cleared. The Bruins sent the troublesome forward to Providence.
That’s… two suspensions in three days totalling 10 games for Rinaldo. I still remember when the Type OBs told me his grit was needed for Flyers success. Fun times.
