Canadian forward JC Lipon suspended for one game at world junior championship

UFA, Russia - The International Ice Hockey Federation has suspended Canadian forward JC Lipon for one game at the world junior hockey championship.

Lipon checked Slovak forward Tomas Mikus behind Slovakia's net in the first period of Canada's 6-3 win Friday.

The Kamloops Blazer was given a major and a game misconduct.

Mikus was not injured on the play. He scored a power-play goal on his next shift.

Canada will be minus two forwards for Sunday's game against the United States.

Boone Jenner will serve the third of a three-game suspension he was assessed on the even of the tournament.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
