Hall of Famer Paul Coffey was recently suspended by the Greater Toronto Hockey League for using a "discriminatory slur," according to The Hockey News. Cheap Desmond Trufant Jersey
. THN.com reported Wednesday that Coffey, who coaches his son Blakes Toronto Marlboros midget AAA team, was involved in a verbal confrontation last Friday during their playoff game against the Mississauga Senators. The hockey publication added that Coffey was originally assessed a gross misconduct penalty for a discriminatory slur and was handed a three-game suspension after an automatic investigation by the GTHL. Coffey was not behind the bench with his team for their playoff game on Tuesday night. The GTHL would not confirm that Coffey was suspended, as its not league policy to disclose its suspensions. However, the league did confirm that the altercation happened and was not considered too serious. "From what I understand, the two opposing coaches went at each other near the end of the game," GTHL President John Gardner told The Toronto Sun on Wednesday. "People do and say crazy things at this time of year, its the playoffs. I think it has been blown out of proportion. "Paul Coffey is a good coach who has done nothing wrong since being involved in this league. But lets face it, hockey is an emotional game and people sometimes say things they dont mean." Neither the Marlies nor Coffey have commented about the incident or the decision, but an official from Mississauga did tell the The Hockey News that the Senators lobbied the GTHL to be lenient, sharing the same sentiment that the situation was being blown out of proportion. "Obviously there has to be punishment, regardless of who is involved," Gardner added. "But in my opinion, I would say this was a minor incident." Coffey, 52, played for 21 seasons in the NHL, winning four Stanley Cups and three Norris trophies as the leagues best defenceman. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2004. Files from The Hockey News and The Toronto Sun were used for this report. Womens Ra Shede Hageman Jersey

. -- UFC president Dana White has dismissed Georges St-Pierres concerns about drug testing, calling them ridiculous and "a little kooky.VANCOUVER -- Marco Sturm wants to make the most of the second chance given to him by the Vancouver Canucks. The free-agent signing was on the ice this week as some Vancouver players prepared for the teams training camp that opens later this month. Sturm, who turns 33 next Thursday, skated with smooth strides and didnt seem to show any affects of a knee that has bothered him the last few seasons. "Im healthy," said the native of Dingolfing, Germany, flashing a wide grin. "I feel good. Hopefully I can show it on the ice." The Canucks are gambling Sturm returns to the form that saw him score 20 or more goals seven times in his 14-year career. There were some eyebrows raised when the Canucks signed Sturm to a one-year deal worth US$2.25-million on the first day of free agency. He had a combined five goals and 11 assists in 35 games with the L.A. Kings and Washington Capitals in 2010-11. During the playoffs he had an goal and two assists in nine games with Washington. "In free agency I was hoping for a good team," said Sturm. "Thats what I got. "Ive scored 20 goals before. Thats my goal to be back to the player I was before injury." Sturm was playing for the Boston Bruins when he tore his ACL and MCL during the 2010 playoffs. That resulted in his second knee operation in two years. He started last season with the Los Angeles Kings but played just 17 games, scoring four goals and adding five assists. The Kings put him on waivers, where he was claimed by Washington. Sturm scored one goals in 18 games with the Capitals. He feels much more confident heading into this season with the Canucks, who lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final to Boston. "I still think Im young," he said. "It should be a good time. "I worked hard enough in the summer. I want too stay healthy. Tyson Jackson Jersey
. Last year I probably came back a little bit too early. I could never catch up. Now I feel good. I had all summer to get stronger again." Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis thinks Sturm is eager to prove he has more gas left in the tank. "I think hes overcome the injuries," said Gillis. "I think we got him at a point in his career when he was very excited to be playing on a team he knows is a good hockey team. "Hes very excited to start the season here and get established. Weve got high expectations of him and hes got high expectations for himself." The Canucks will be looking at Sturm to bring some scoring punch to a lineup that is hobbled by injuries. Centre Ryan Kesler is expected to miss training camp, and possibly some early games, after undergoing off-season hip surgery. Left-winger Mason Raymond isnt expected to return until November after suffering a vertebrae compression fracture in Game 6 of the final against Boston. Veteran Mikael Samuelsson also had surgery for an abdominal injury but has given himself the all clear. Sturm was drafted 21st overall by the Sharks in 1996. The six-foot, 194-forward was traded to Boston in November 2005 as part of the deal that saw Joe Thornton go to San Jose. He missed most of the 2008-09 season recovering from a knee injury suffered in a Dec. 18 game against Toronto. Sturm returned the next season to score 22 goals for the Bruins. During his career Sturm has scored 27 goals in a season twice and 28 once. He doesnt see any problem fitting in with the Canucks, who like to play a fast-skating game. "I can play either wing on every line," he said. "Im pretty simple and straight forward. "I think the team is good enough to help me get it going again."
