Ian Cole Suspended 3 Games

Ian Cole of the St Louis Blues has been suspended 3 games for his hit on Justin Abdelkader. The hit occurred last night in the first period of Detroit's 3-0 win over the Blues, and marks the second time that a Blue has been suspended following a hit on a Red Wing.

Here's the video from Shanahan explaining the reasoning for the suspension:


I'll admit I was a little surprised at the length of the suspension, although he definitely deserved to sit a game since it was a direct hit to the head. Hell, I was shocked that he didn't get 5 and a game since it was pretty obvious at the time. Cole has no history of any supplemental discipline, and thankfully Abdelkader was ok, but this is exactly the type of hit the NHL is trying to get out of the game.
