For the Week of 11/26/01
Jason Weimer - Florida Panthers
Wiemer was suspended by the NHL for seven games last week for high-sticking Toronto's Darcy Tucker resulting in a concussion. Tucker is expected to be out for at least a week because of a Grade 3 concussion, Maple Leafs head coach Pat Quinn said.

Wiemer hit Tucker with the butt-end of his stick, and was given an elbowing major and game misconduct during the Maple Leafs' 5-1 victory over the Panthers last week. Video replays show Wiemer skating up on Tucker from behind then jabbing at the Leafs player with his stick. The concussion was most likely compounded when Tucker fell and slammed his head on the ice.

NHL angel of death Colin Campbell spoke with Wiemer after watching a replay of the hit, and then presented his ruling.

"While it is not clear from a review of the videotape of the incident whether the injury sustained by Tucker was caused by the action of Wiemer or by other factors, it is clear that Wiemer's actions were deliberate and dangerous," Campbell said.
