Kassian Gets 2

The Canadians will have to do without Zack Kassian for two games.

Kassian has also been suspended for Canada's game against Sweden on Friday, this coming after Kassian knew he would not be playing against Norway on Wednesday.

Kassian drew an automatic one-game suspension when he was assessed a match penalty for hitting Petr Senkerik in the head and neck area during the second period of Canada's 7-2 win on Tuesday.

Former NHL referee Dan Marouelli, who is the disciplinary judge for the 2011 World Junior Championship, made his decision to suspend Kassian for one more game on Wednesday morning.

Canada also is dealing with injuries to defenceman Calvin de Haan and forward Jaden Schwartz, which means the bench against Norway could be short by as many as three players.
