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.
