Report: NHL To Have Informal Meeting With Alexandre Burrows Regarding Biting Incident

Much has been made about whether or not Vancouver Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows will or should be suspended after biting Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron at the end of the first period of the Canucks' 1-0 Game 1 win in the Stanley Cup Finals, but now it looks like the NHL might discuss it, too.

Via TSN's Bob McKenzie, the NHL will hold an informal meeting with Burrows and that a decision regarding supplementary discipline should come at some point Thursday.

I would be shocked if Burrows is suspended for having too much bite, but NHL is going to talk to him today. Not a formal hearing, I am told.less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

 

If the NHL decides to suspend Burrows, it will be interesting to see how many games he will have to sit. Considering that it took place during the Stanley Cup Finals, a one-game suspension would be just as detrimental as a several-game suspension in the regular season. Game 2 is not until Saturday, so the NHL does not necessarily have to make a decision Thursday like McKenzie said.
