NEW YORK (Jan. 1, 2015) – Edmonton Oilers defenseman Keith Aulie has been suspended for two games, without pay, for an illegal check to the head of Calgary Flames forward Matt Stajan during NHL Game No. 555 in Calgary on Wednesday, Dec. 31, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 19:05 of the first period. Aulie was assessed a match penalty.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and, based on his average annual salary, Aulie will forfeit $8,602.16. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
At this point there is no suspension video but you can watch the hit below...
This trade did not happen because of Lupul.
In a one for one trade, Beauchemin can fetch a better player than Lupul from another team.
Brian Burke knows this.
What Burke also knows though is that there aren’t any teams out there that would give up a prospect like Jake Gardiner on top of a player like Lupul and a pick for a player like Beauchemin.
That is the trade in a nut shell.
So who is Jake Gardiner?
