The Western Hockey League has suspended Prince George Cougars left winger Josh Maser for four games after an incident in the team's 3-2 loss to the Vancouver Giants on Oct. 6.
At 0:11 in the second period, Maser was given a five-minute major for slew-footing Vancouver Giants forward Just Sourdif. He also received a game misconduct.
(Slew-footing is when a player comes up behind or alongside an opponent and uses their foot to knock the legs out from under their opponent.)
With the four-game suspension, Maser will miss upcoming contests against Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Kootenay and Swift Current.

The Cougars sit last in the B.C. Division with a 2-4-0-1 record and seven points. The club is also on a three-game losing streak.
