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

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.

— New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano
