The stay of Patrice Cormier with the Rouyn-Noranda took an odd tangent Sunday afternoon at the Dave Keon Arena.
Forward originally from Cap-Pelé, New Brunswick, who was playing his third game only with the Huskies, was expelled from the meeting at 3:32 of the overtime period for giving a blow to the head of defender Ramparts Mikael Tam.
The force of the impact was such that the back left the ice in convulsions on a stretcher. However, Tam is out of danger and in stable condition in hospital. He suffered a brain head trauma and lost some teeth. He will remain under observation for at least 48 hours.

This Cormier elbow is sickening on so many levels. I have never been so discouraged about the game of hockey as now.
