Canucks' Carson Soucy Suspended One Game for McDavid Cross-Check

The NHL Department of Player Safety has come down on Vancouver Canucks defenseman Carson Soucy. 

During a scrum to end Game 3 vs the Edmonton Oilers, Soucy got into it behind the net with Oilers superstar Connor McDavid and after the two were finishing slashing each other, McDavid was cross-checked from behind by Nikita Zadorov, fell, and as he was falling Soucy delivered a cross-check to McDavid's face.

Soucy will now miss Game 4 of the series on Tuesday night in Edmonton, with Vancouver up 2-1 in the series. Soucy is eligible to return Game 5 on Thursday night.
