He won't be banned by the IIHF but after the bronze medal game he will have a 3 game ban still to serve and only regulation IIHF games count, not even exhibition. So the point was would a coach really want to add him to the team knowing he'll miss 3 out of 4 round-robin games next year? Further, if he makes the NHL next year and is unavailable for the junior team will this ban continue on in perpituity. Let's say the Islanders miss the playoffs and he is up for the World Championships, would that coach take him knowing he'll miss 3 round robin games especially considering how those players always talk about how tired they are? If you carry this logic far enough you could argue he'll never make another IIHF team.
