Awesome. Just what the Pens need right now.

Report: Penguins' Cooke gets 4-game ban
Wednesday, 02.09.2011 / 1:02 PM / News

Matt Cooke of the Pittsburgh Penguins was suspended four games by the NHL on Wednesday for hitting Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Fedor Tyutin from behind Tuesday night, according to Nick Kypreos of Rogers Sportsnet.

With 5:22 remaining in the first period and the Jackets leading the Penguins 1-0 at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Tyutin skated deep into his own zone to retrieve a dump-in. With his back turned near the boards, Tyutin absorbed a blind-side hit by Cooke.

Cooke received a five-minute major penalty for charging and an additional five minutes for his fight with Jackets forward Derrick Brassard that followed the hit. Tyutin was uninjured.
That means he'll be out for the Kings, Islanders, Rangers and Avalanche.
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!
