Minnesota Wild forward Matt Cooke has likely put himself in the middle of another controversy.
Roughly two minutes into the second period of tonight’s first round game against the Avalanche, Cooke delivered a knee-on-knee hit to Colorado’s Tyson Barrie. The 22-year-old defenseman immediately fell to the ice as a result before promptly leaving the game.
Cooke was assessed a two-minute minor that Minnesota successfully killed off, but the NHL might decide that the hit is worthy of supplemental discipline.
The same can’t be said yet for Barrie.
Joe Sakic to Denver Post on whether Matt Cooke should be suspended: "I'm confident the league will do the right thing."
