Brock McBride of Villach SV has been suspended for two games following an attack on leading scorer Mathis Olimb on September 7th.

McBride was a assessed a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for sucker punching the Frölunda star late in the game. As a result, McBride will miss the remainder of the group stage of the Champions Hockey League season.

Frölunda is now tied with Genève-Servette with 9 points atop the group C, while Villach remains third with 6 points. Frolunda has been a popular team this year, as both Olimb and team-mate Andreas Johansson have been atop the tournament scoring charts so far.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
