Zack Kassian suspended two games for pummeling Matthew Tkachuk

Yahoo! Sports

The Battle of Alberta is known for its tussles, but usually they’re a bit less one-sided than the one that transpired during Saturday’s contest between the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers.

Oilers forward Zack Kassian sought retaliation immediately after receiving a crushing hit from behind the Calgary net delivered by Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk. Unfortunately for the 22-year-old Flame, Kassian wasn’t going to stop until he had accomplished his goal.

On Monday, it was announced that Kassian will receive a two-game suspension for his actions.
