TSK TSK Zack In case you missed it earlier today, Canucks forward Zack Kassian was suspended 5 regular season games. Plus the rest of the preseason. WHY you ask? For his high stick that broke the jaw of Edmonton’s Sam Gagner on Saturday. “As he nears the boards Kassian comes to a spinning stop, recklessly swinging his stick and striking Gagner in the face and breaking his jaw,” said NHL director of player safety Brendan Shanahan. “While we accept Kassian’s assertion that he did not intend to strike Gagner in the face, he is however responsible for the consequences of swinging his stick in this instance. In summary, this was high sticking.” Follow NWSB on our Facebook page for live 24-7-365 updates of all our Northwest Sports Teams!!
