Canada's Lipon suspended one game

Canada forward JC Lipon has been suspended one game by the International Ice Hockey Federation and will have to sit out Sunday's game against the United States (4:30 a.m. ET, NHLN-US, TSN).

Lipon, a 2013 NHL Draft prospect, was assessed a major for a hit to the head/neck area and a game misconduct for a high hit on Slovakia's Tomas Mikus during Friday's game.

Canada will play Sunday with just 11 forwards, as Lipon joins Boone Jenner on the sideline. Sunday is the final game of Jenner's three-game suspension for a hit during a pre-tournament game against Sweden.

Lipon and Jenner will be eligible to return for Canada's final game of the preliminary round, Dec. 31 against Russia.

It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal. It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."
