Jake Voracek will reportedly meet with Gary Bettman this afternoon to appeal his suspension

Let’s make it right.

The National Hockey League Players’ Association is appealing Jake Voracek’s two-game suspension, according to multiple reports.

Dave Isaac first reported the appeal earlier on Monday.

And Chris Johnston reported that the NHLPA is filing an “expedited hearing” for the appeal.

UPDATE: John Shannon reported Monday evening that the appeal hearing will be held on Tuesday afternoon.

Voracek’s appeal wasn’t heard prior to the Flyers’ game against the Senators on Monday night, the first game of his suspension, and that didn’t come as a surprise. The Flyers got the win, however, and moved three points back of the Columbus Blue Jackets as well.

However, reducing the suspension to one game could be a possibility. That would allow Voracek to return to action for Thursday’s game against the Washington Capitals.

That seems like the best course of action. Voracek should have been given a game misconduct since an injury occurred on a major penalty and a one-game suspension could be okay in lieu of that. The two-game suspension is a joke and the league can make it right by reducing it to one game.

Inconsistency reigns supreme as Voracek receives two-game suspension for interference

Thursday’s game will be crucial for the Flyers. Every point matters and having every player available is huge, especially a player like Voracek. He may have mainly made headlines for his reverse-hit interference, but he stayed hot with two primary assists in the 5-2 win against the Islanders.
