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 know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
