Zack Kassian suspended three games

It goes from bad to worse for the Vancouver Canucks. After losing 6-1 to the Dallas Stars Thursday, the NHL's department of player safety told right winger Zack Kassian that he'll have to watch the next few games from the press box after a dangerous hit last night.

As if the debacle in Dallas wasn't bad enough for Vancouver, the Canucks found out today that they'll be without Zack Kassian for three games after he was suspended by the NHL for this hit on Brenden Dillon of the Stars last night.

Kassian received a major penalty and a game misconduct for the check from behind. The Stars scored once on the five-minute power play.

Factoring into the decision was that Kassian is a repeat offender this season. He was suspended in September for the three pre-season and five regular season games after recklessly high sticking Sam Gagner.
