But since the NHL rules by result and not intent, and he has a record as a repeat offender, he should be done for the year at the very least.
no action will be taken towards him by the NHL. but you can bet the Sens have his ass lined up when they meet again.
their best player is out for the season over some really dumb crap.
Cooke likely didn't mean to come down on the back of his heel but he definitely was trying use his skate to force him further into the board.
