The sports judges take Borgatello out of action

The past ice hockey weekend had an aftermath for HC Meran: Christian Borgatello was subsequently suspended due to a harsh attack. This means, among other things, that he is missing from an important South Tyrolean duel.

Borgatello played a key role with three assists The Eagles 5:4 at home against Celje. However, the 41-year-old veteran was noticed negatively in one action, namely when he crossed the path of guest player Jure Povse in the final third and hit him in the head with his shoulder.


The referees punished the offense with a small penalty. However, the sports judges have now watched the action on video and sanctioned the check to the head again. Borgatello is suspended for two games. This means that the HCM will miss the Steel Wings Linz on Friday and the important home game against Val Gardena on Saturday. The defender will not be back on the ice until February.
