    Default The Devil's a classy organisation after all

    Devils won’t “explore other avenues” for Cormier’s return before end of QMJHL playoffs (UPDATED)
    Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello issued a statement this afternoon about 2008 draft pick Patrice Cormier being suspended earlier today for the remainder of the QMJHL regular season and all of the playoffs. Cormier, who plays for Rouyn-Noranda, was suspended for his elbow to the head of Quebec Remparts defenseman Mikael Tam on Jan. 17.

    “We fully respect the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s decision regarding last week’s incident,” Lamoriello said. “The Devils’ organization views this situation seriously, and does not condone Patrice Cormier’s actions.

    “This unfortunate incident does not reflect the character of the Patrice Cormier we know. We trust that Patrice will have learned a valuable lession that will serve him well when he returns to hockey as a valued player in our organization. We will honor the league’s suspension, have not considered, and will not explore other avenues for his return this season.

    “We are pleased to hear the Mikael Tam is doing well. Our thoughts are with him for a full recovery.”

    Lamoriello addressed the media after releasing the statement and, though he said the team would not look for a way for Cormier to play before the end of the junior season, he would not rule out Cormier playing for Lowell in the AHL after the QMJHL playoffs are over. “We have not considered that,” he said.

    Lamoriello said Cormier would be eligible to play in the AHL after the QMJHL playoffs are over.

    “We said the end of the season and, at this given time, we’re going to honor that 100 percent,” Lamoreillo said.

    They just showed the hit on vs. one of the worst things ive seen in hockey in a long time. No question he should have been suspended for the season. Ive seen some bloody stuff happen in hockey but i dont recall ever seeing a man convulse on the ice. Scary stuff.
