    Kuznetsov suspended by IIHF for cocaine usage

    https://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/...-years-cocaine

    I don't know if anyone remembers this, but after the Caps won the Cup, there was a video of him in a hotel room where people were doing lines. The video didn't actually show him doing it himself, and he admitted to being there but claims he didn't partake himself.

    Now we will have to see if that idiot Bettman does anything about it, but he's always been reluctant to suspend star players on good teams.

    Can he suspend a NHL player without a failed drug test?

    He's protected by the NHLPA.

    Bettman cant suspend a player by himself, unless he breaks league policy. I dont think an IIHF failed drug test qualifies

    All he has to do with NHL is sign up for treatment program which he has already done.

    he won’t miss an NHL game.

    Question then: there’s video of him in a room where people are using cocaine, not exactly a common situation for people who don’t partake themselves. He failed an IIHF drug test.

    So there is strong evidence that he uses cocaine. Why isn’t he failing NHL drug tests?

    Maybe only does it in the off season? They also had Ryan Johanssen from the Preds on tv making the nose wipe common gesture for blow. Nothing happened to him as far as I know.

    However, according to the NHL and NHLPA's joint substance abuse and behavioral health program, players are not suspended for positive tests. Rather, if the program administrators flag "abnormally high levels" of any substance, the veil of anonymity is lifted and doctors can recommend treatment. The player is not required to enter the program if he doesn't want to

    Kuznetsov got 3 games:

    It's not gonna affect their season. If he gets caught again, they'll probably give him 15 or 20 games.
