Del Paggio was suspended by the QMJHL on Friday for his hit on Conor Garland in Wednesday's game. Garland left the game and did not return but did play in Moncton’s Friday night match against Victoriaville.
The QMJHL website has a very lengthy explanation of the suspension.
There are reports that Will Smith, who ran over and injured Sea Dogs goaltender Marc-Antoine Turcotte, has received a two-game suspension. That has not been posted on the QMJHL website.
