Matt Cooke will not appeal his 7-game suspension, according to Chad Graff of the Pioneer Press and Mike Russo of the Star Tribune.


Cooke was suspended Wednesday for his hit on Colorado's Tyson Barrie in Game 3.

Cooke was an important penalty killer and member of the checking line for the Wild, but Barrie was more important for the Avs, and Barrie will miss 4-to-6 weeks with an MCL injury as a result of the knee-to-knee collision.

Here's a link explaining the suspension decision process.
