Report: Jeff Cowan Suspended


Sources tell TSN that Vancouver Canucks forward Jeff Cowan has been suspended one game for his hit to the head on Detroit’s Derek Meech.

The incident occurred in the first period of the Canucks victory over the Red Wings on Saturday night.

I was watching this game in a bar (shocking, I know) and didn’t actually see the hit in question. Was a suspension warranted?  Looking for video…

Update 8:00pm PT: I should note that Cowan was quoted on Sportsnet television last night stating that he himself felt his hit was too high when he looked at it, and took responsibility for that.
