WCHA Suspends Alaska-Anchorage's Brett Cameron One Game for Hit

New, comment

The WCHA has given a one-game suspension to Alaska-Anchorage forward Brett Cameron stemming from a hit against Wisconsin's Tim Davison last Sunday in UAA's win over Wisconsin at the Kendall Hockey Classic.

Cameron was assessed a five-minute major and game misconduct on the play. While it was a devastating hit--Davison's helmet was knocked off and he laid on the ice for a bit before receiving help off the ice-- most seemed to agree that Cameron's hit was relatively clean. Here's video of the hit. Here was BuckyHockey.com's Andy Johnson's description of the play:

Brett Cameron's hit on Tim Davison in the third period was legal. I don't like the hit, especially because it forced Davison's helmet to come off, but I can't argue that it was dirty. It was within the rules. It's unfortunate that Davison was hurt, but what do you do? The hit was shoulder to shoulder.

Cameron will sit out UAA's game next game against Penn State on Friday.
