Hossa did take a cheap shot to the head and did not return to the game.

Jensen has a hearing for that hit.


from tsn.ca:

Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen is scheduled for a hearing with league officials at 3:30pm et on Wednesday for his hit on Marian Hossa of the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.

Hossa, who was reaching for the puck high in the air, had to be helped off the ice during the third period following a forearm to the back of the head from Hansen.

"It wasn't even a penalty," Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault said after the game. "Both referees looked at the play. Until (Blackhawks forward Jonathan) Toews went out to talk to them, it wasn't even a penalty."

"I think everybody saw it," said Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville. "Everybody can have their own opinion. So we'll let the people who do that stuff do their job."

Hansen has never been suspended during his NHL career but he was suspended at last year's World Hockey Championship.

The Danish forward was handed a one-game suspension for a hit from behind during a game against the Czech Republic.

I'm going to put this in the " Cripes - He's played Less Than 10 Games " file.


from tsn.ca:

One of the breakout stories of the 2012-13 NHL season was rewarded on Wednesday as the Anaheim Ducks signed rookie goaltender Viktor Fasth to a two-year, $5.8 million contract extension.

This season for the Ducks, his first in the NHL, Fasth has posted a perfect 8-0-0 record with a 1.78 goals against average and a .933 save percentage.

He is just the third netminder in NHL history to win his first eight decisions, joining Ray Emery, who accomplished the feat with the Ottawa Senators and Bob Froese, who did it with the Philadelphia Flyers.

"Viktor has proven himself not only this year in the NHL, but the previous two seasons as the top goaltender in Sweden," said Ducks General Manager Bob Murray. "We are pleased to be able to keep him and feel fortunate to have two top NHL goaltenders going forward."

Before joining the Ducks, the Kalix, Sweden native was named the Swedish Elite League's goaltender of the year the last two seasons, the first goalie to capture the award in back-to-back seasons since Henrik Lundqvist.

Fasth also led Sweden to a silver medal at the 2011 World Hockey Championship.

Fasth has been a world class Goalie for years. It isn't like He just showed up on the scene.

He had 2 very good years in the top Pro League in Sweden ( 88 GP with a 2.19 GAA and a .928 Save Pct. ) but that doesn't always translate well in the North American game. Of course if he keeps this pace up and leads the Ducks far into the Playoffs then this deal will look like a steal for Anaheim.

Hansen got 1 game for his hit last night on Hossa.



from tsn.ca:

Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen has been suspended one game for an illegal hit on Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa during Tuesday night's contest.

The incident occurred during the third period of the Blackhawks' 4-3 shootout victory over the Canucks.

Hansen appeared to hit Hossa in the back of the head with a forearm as the veteran Blackhawks forward was reaching for a puck in the air. Hossa had to be helped off the ice and didn't return to the game.

"It wasn't even a penalty," Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault said after the game. "Both referees looked at the play. Until (Blackhawks forward Jonathan) Toews went out to talk to them, it wasn't even a penalty."

"I think everybody saw it," said Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville. "Everybody can have their own opinion. So we'll let the people who do that stuff do their job."

This is the first NHL suspension for Hansen during his seven-year career, though he was suspended for one game at last year's World Hockey Championship for a hit from behind.

Hansen has three goals and four assists in 15 games this season.

Last year, Hossa suffered a concussion after a high hit by Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres during a first-round playoff matchup.

The Toronto Sun reports Brian Burke could indeed be working for another NHL team by the end of the season.

A source familiar with the situation says Burke is being sought for a scouting position with another club and that Leafs permission has been granted for that team to approach the fired president and general manager, let go just prior to the start of this season.

“I think (the Leafs) want to give him that chance to be a general manager again elsewhere,” the source told the Toronto Sun.

Burke has been around the rink scouting for USA Hockey of late. Under the terms of his departure, he has an advisory role to the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment board of directors, but does not have a say in hockey decisions.

 

The FAN590 is reporting the team in question is the Anaheim Ducks.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


TSN just confirmed that Burke is headed back to Anaheim.



Former Maple Leafs' president and general manager Brian Burke is heading back to Anaheim.

Burke, who assumed an advisor role with the Maple Leafs after being fired just before the season, has accepted a part-time pro scouting position with the Anaheim Ducks.

"Brian and I discussed this opportunity after Anaheim approached the Leafs for permission to speak with him about a possible scouting role," said Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) President Tom Anselmi. "We both agreed that taking this role with Anaheim would best position Brian for his next general manager opportunity in the League. We have granted permission and we will terminate his consulting contract with MLSE so that he can pursue this role with Anaheim."

Burke returns to the Ducks after originally serving as executive vice president/general manager from 2005-08 and helping the team capture their first Stanley Cup in 2007.

"We are happy to welcome Brian back to the organization," said Ducks executive vice president/general manager Bob Murray. "Anytime you can add a person of his quality to your staff, it makes your organization better. We've had success working together before and look forward to doing it again."

Hossa and Seabrook both were back in the lineup. Still no Crawford. Hawks beat San Jose 2-1 to go 14-0-3 and set a NHL record for most games without a regulation loss to start a season.

You'll be even sadder when they don't get the # 1 pick in the next draft.

Crawford was the backup and could have played, Quenneville just went with Emery since he's been so hot since Crawford went down. I'm sure Crawford starts one of Sunday or Monday's games.
