OHL suspends Knights forward Pawley for hitting opponent in the head

TORONTO - Forward Corey Pawley of the London Knights has been suspended eight games by the OHL for hitting an opponent in the head during a game last week.

Pawley was suspended for hitting Ottawa's Mark Petaccio in the head at centre ice during London's 11-1 victory over the 67's on Thursday night.

The five-foot-eight, 163-pound Pawley received a five-minute major penalty and was ejected from the game for the incident.

Pawley, 18, has already sat out two games and will be eligible to return to London's lineup Feb. 17 when the Knights travel to St. Catharines, Ont., to face the Niagara IceDogs.

Quote of the Day

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
