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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
