Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian had a 10-minute phone hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan on Monday, making his case for the league not to suspend him.
Kassian was called to the carpet after his high stick made contact with Edmonton Oilers centre Sam Gagner in Saturday night's game, breaking Gagner's jaw.
Gagner and Kassian collided along the boards, with Kassian's stick knocking out some of Gagner's teeth. X-rays later confirmed Gagner had suffered a broken jaw and Kassian received a double-minor on the play.
"I had no intention of slashing him in the face," Kassian told reporters on Monday after his hearing. "It was definitely accidental and hopefully he gets back sooner than later."
The two teams meet again in Vancouver on Oct. 5 and the Oilers added some more muscle on Monday picking up enforcer Steve MacIntyre off waivers.
"Perfect," Kassian told reporters after being informed of the move. "I don't think he can skate, that's the last thing on our mind."
Canucks forward Dale Weise also had an audience with Shanahan over the phone on Monday after delivering an illegal hit to the head to Oilers centre Taylor Hall. Weise, who did not speak to reporters on Monday, picked up a minor for the incident.

OK,

Still waiting to see what happens between Kassian vs Kessel regarding stick swinging.

Not sure Kessel can use this excuse of it being "accidental"

*as well sorry for caps in title, copied and pasted like that

He's out for 6 months (which will hinder his development) and he really needs that development. There's already worries that he won't translate to the NHL and he'll end up a huge ass bust.

Careless use of the stick by Kassian, he needs to have a lot more control. Worth a fine and a talking to for sure, but I see that play a lot and half the time it's not even called let alone reason for a suspension.

This is what hockey should be. A lot of chances, a lot of hitting, no cheap shots, no chirping after whistles."

If Kassian gets a game it could be argued it is warranted. But if Kessel gets equal or less time than Kassian the canucks need to desperately appeal this.
