The Vancouver Canucks (or at least their minor league team) continue to haunt their once-formidable netminder Daniel Cloutier. But at least he still has some spunk left.
IceHogs goalie Dan Cloutier received a one-game suspension for his actions in Sunday's game against the Moose.
Cloutier, playing his first game in over a year after recovering from a pair of hip surgeries, lost his cool during the second period after Guillaume Desbiens was pushed into him.
Cloutier, who signed a pro tryout offer after going to training camp with the Detroit Red Wings, punched Desbiens with his blocker and was given a match penalty at the time.
"I came here to get some minutes and play," Cloutier told the Rockford Register Star. "I would have liked to have played more minutes. I've been known for being a guy who sticks up for himself. It's hard to change that part of my game. At the same time, it was a selfish play on my part because I did come here to play and took myself out of the game."
