A shout out to The Pipeline Show buddy Kevin Forbes from Hockey's Future on this one...
Instead of me trying to describe a scene that I didn't witness, here's the video evidence:
This release came earlier today...
"The CCHA, upon review of the on-ice incidents in the Jan. 24th game between Michigan and Michigan State, fully supports the decision of Michigan State’s athletic administration to suspend the playing privileges of players Corey Tropp and Andrew Conboy for the remainder of the season, including playoffs."
Just plain ugly. Reading various message boards that have threads on the incident, word is that Tropp (the player Kampfer laid out with a clean open ice hit) came in a club him a couple times like a baby seal. I haven't heard how seriously Kampfer is hurt this time so if anyone knows, please pass it on.
For the record, Conboy is a Montreal Canadiens 5th round pick from 2007, Tropp belongs to Buffalo (3rd, 2007) and Kampfer is an Anaheim prospect.
Off topic here but clearly stupid incidents like this happen in leagues with or without fighting... it doesn't really seem to matter does it?
