A history of Matt Cooke's NHL suspensions

Matt Cooke is facing a likely suspension after his knee-on-knee hit to Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie.

Barrie reportedly will miss four to six weeks with an MCL injury.

Cook's suspension history will be a factor in the decision whether or not to suspend him, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie. It's worth noting, however, that since Cooke's most recent suspension was more than 18 months ago, that history won't be considered for lost wages due to missed games.
