The National Hockey League handed down a significant suspension to Ottawa Senators forward Shane Pinto for violating the league’s gambling policy. Pinto was suspended 41 games without pay for betting on NHL games over the past few seasons. The league launched an investigation after receiving information that Pinto had placed wagers on multiple NHL games since he joined the league in 2021. Under NHL rules, players are prohibited from gambling on any hockey games. The suspension will cost Pinto nearly half of this season’s salary. The Senators said they accept the NHL’s decision and will not appeal. Pinto released a statement apologizing to the team’s fans and taking full responsibility for his actions. The suspension is one of the harshest ever for an NHL gambling violation.
