Penguins' GM Shero: 'Suspension is warranted'
Pittsburgh Penguins General Manager Ray Shero released the following statement today after the NHL announced Penguins forward Matt Cooke will be suspended for the rest of the regular season (10 games) and the first round of the playoffs:

"The suspension is warranted because that's exactly the kind of hit we're trying to get out of the game. Head shots have no place in hockey. We've told Matt in no uncertain terms that this kind of action on the ice is unacceptable and cannot happen. Head shots must be dealt with severely, and the Pittsburgh Penguins support the NHL in sending this very strong message."


Quote of the Day

It's a moment that I've thought about for a very long time. It definitely feels great to get it out of the way. I couldn't have dreamed a better situation. I'm so thankful for this.
