Vancouver’s Weise suspended for preseason


The NHL suspended Vancouver Canucks forward Dale Weise for the remainder of the 2013 preseason for a high hit on Edmonton Oilers winger Taylor Hall, the Vancouver Province’s Ben Kuzma reports.

Here’s the video explanation:

While Zack Kassian’s able to sidestep possible retribution for several months with his five-game suspension, Weise might just have to answer for that hit pretty soon, as the Canucks host the Oilers on Oct. 5 (the second game of the regular season).

That’s assuming that Weise, 25, is in the regular rotation, of course.
