Canucks_Zack_Kassian_2013 [1]Vancouver Canucks right-winger Zack Kassian pleaded his case with the NHL’s department of safety Monday but it apparently fell on deaf ears.

Kassian was suspended for eight games by league disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan — three in pre-season and the first five of the regular season — for breaking the jaw of Edmonton Oilers centre Sam Gagner with a careless high stick Saturday. He also broke five of Gagner’s teeth.
