London Knights forward Matt Rupert given 15-game ban for hit to the head

LONDON, Ont. - London Knights forward Matt Rupert has been given a 15-game suspension by the Ontario Hockey League for delivering a hit to the head of an opponent in a game last week.

The incident occurred in the third period of a 5-4 shootout loss to the Barrie Colts on Nov. 8.

The 19-year-old left-winger has already served two games of the ban.

Rupert, from Grand Bend, Ont., is eligible to return to the lineup on Dec. 15 against Kingston.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
