Rangers Prospect Christian Thomas Suspended 10 Games For High-Stick

According to Jess Rubenstein over at The Prospect Park, Rangers prospect Christian Thomas has been suspended 10 games for a high sticking incident in Sunday's game against the London Knights. 

Video of the incident

Cannot agree with the punishment here considering in the video showing the punishment the league says that there was no intent and no serious injury to the play struck with the stick.  Suspending Thomas for being irresponsible with his stick is certainly warranted, but the length of the suspension is excessive.
