Constantine suspended for four games

The Everett Silvertips, projected by many as the Western Hockey League's top team this season, are in a bit of controversy today after a unique punishment meted out by former NHL coach Kevin Constantine:
Everett Silvertips coach Kevin Constantine has been fined $5,000 (U.S.) and suspended four games by the Western Hockey League for excessively punishing his players after a loss.

The Silvertips were beaten 5-0 by Tri-City during a pre-season tournament Sunday and Constantine had the players remain in their gear for a post-game meal and the four-hour bus ride back to Everett.

Jack Adams and Eddie Shore would approve.
