BOUCHERVILLE, Que. - The Moncton Wildcats are appealing the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's decision to not suspend Cape Breton Screaming Eagles defenceman Mathieu Brodeur.
The Wildcats sent the league video from Saturday's 6-0 playoff win over the Screaming Eagles seeking discipline for Brodeur's hit from behind on Moncton centre Ted Stephens.
Brodeur was assessed a five-minute major and game-misconduct penalty on the play but no further discipline was issued by the league's disciplinary prefect Raymond Bolduc.
Commissioner Gilles Courteau will hear the appeal in the next few days.
Moncton took a 3-0 series lead into Game 4 of their series Wednesday night.
