Aliu suspended for fight in Sudbury

The Ontario Hockey League suspended Akim Aliu, the Chicago Blackhawks prospect, this week for his attack on Sudbury Wolves blue liner Chris VanLaren late in the third period of play last Friday.

The action, which was described previously in the blog, received new attention in the London Free Press and the Sudbury Star when the league gave Aliu an indefinite suspension. Aliu, currently with the London Knights, could be lost for 20 games, according to the reports. That would significantly effect the Knights chances of winning the OHL title. Aliu is ranked second on the Knights in terms of points, with 26 goals and 32 assists in 58 games.
