Canucks' Zack Kassian suspended 3 games for hit on Stars' Brenden Dillon

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian was suspended for three games without pay by the NHL on Friday for a hit on the Dallas Stars' Brenden Dillon.

Kassian received a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct for the hit in the first period of the Stars' 6-1 victory over the Canucks.

Kassian has been suspended before for high-sticking and is considered a repeat offender.

The suspension will cost him $32,104.

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.
