QMJHL suspends Patrice Cormier for remainder of season and playoffs for elbow on Mikael Tam

Four days ago the Ontario League suspended Zach Kassian 20 games for his charge on Matt Kennedy of the Barrie Colts Jan. 14.

Tam is currently out of hospital, but it isn’t yet known whether he will be able to continue his hockey-playing career.

Cormier, the captain of Team Canada’s world junior team this year, was picked in the second round (54th overall) of the 2008 draft by the New Jersey Devils.
