Vancouver Canucks right-winger Zack Kassian will be sitting for the remainder of the pre-season and the first five games of the regular season after the NHL suspended him Monday for breaking the jaw of Edmonton Oilers centre Sam Gagner on Saturday. Kassian, who insisted the high-sticking incident was accidental, broke five of Gagner's teeth.
