Supplementary discipline possible for Cooke - 11-29-09

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

According to TSN, supplementary discipline is possible for Penguins forward Matt Cooke following his hit to the head of Rangers forward Artem Anisimov last night. Replays showed Cooke leaving his feet to deliver the hit. Cooke was given a two-minute minor for interference for the hit.

EN Says: We'll be surprised if Cooke is playing Monday. Whether it's right or wrong, the NHL considers prior history when doling discipline and Cooke was suspended as recently as last season for a hit to the head of Hurricanes forward Scott Walker.
