Guelph Storm defenseman Chadd Bauman was suspended on Wednesday for the remainder of the Memorial Cup. The decision was made by the NHL Hockey Operations department, which oversees player discipline issues for the Canadian Hockey League during the Memorial Cup.
Baumann was assessed a major penalty for kneeing and a game misconduct after a collision with Val-d'Or Foreurs defenseman Guillaume Gelinas at 7:50 of the third period of the teams' game Monday.
Gelinas did not return to the game after the incident.
Guelph plays its final game in the preliminary round Wednesday, against the host London Knights. As the only team to win its first two games in round-robin play, Guelph already has earned a spot in the championship game Sunday.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
