Three games for Cantin

Edit: Arthur Staple says to expect a Matt Donovan recall. Edit2: The Islanders announced it at about 6 p.m.

The AHL handed Marc Cantin a three-game suspension Thursday. Cantin received a match penalty Tuesday for a check to the head of Portland’s Brendan Shinnimin.

Cantin is eligible to return when the Sound Tigers next play at home… against Portland.

Meanwhile the World Juniors ended for the United States this morning with a loss to Russia. Legitimate arguments about who’s left off the Olympic team… aggravation at a quarterfinals exit at the WJC… what a time to be an American hockey fan.
