Cormier suspended for remainder of season

Former World Junior captain can return to QMJHL next year

Patrice Cormier’s hockey season is over. The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League forward was suspended by the league for the rest of the year for his elbow to the head of Quebec City’s Mikael Tam. Tam went into convulsions after Cormier’s cheap shot and was admitted to hospital with brain trauma. (He has since been released.) A second-round pick of the New Jersey Devils, the 19-year-old Cormier remains eligible to return to his junior squad next year.
