Vancouver Canucks right wing Zack Kassian faces a phone hearing with the NHL’s department of player safety after breaking the jaw of Oilers winger Sam Gagner Saturday night.
The league offered Kassian an in-person hearing which means he could face a suspension of more than five games.
The Oilers announced Sunday that Gagner is out indefinitely with a broken jaw and that he will miss the start of the regular season.
Here's the hit...
Craig MacTavish was quite vocal about his displeasure...
"I don’t know that he wouldn’t have done it had we had...a Colton Orr in the lineup. But we could use that element."
And whaddya wanna bet they're going shopping...???
