Once again, Matt Cooke is the talk of the NHL, and, once again, it isn’t for something good he’s done.

About two minutes into the second period, the Minnesota Wild forward delivered a knee-on-knee hit to Colorado Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie. Barrie crumbled to the ice immediately before leaving the game.

Cooke was given a two-minute minor for the play, but that may not be the only discipline he faces. As a repeat offender for plays that resulted in injuries, Cooke could be getting a call from the NHL rather quickly.
