TORONTO - The bad blood between the Oshawa Generals and Kingston Frontenacs has resulted in another lengthy suspension.

The Ontario Hockey League suspended Oshawa's James DeLory for 12 games on Friday, punishment that comes after he viciously slashed Kingston's Nathan Moon before punching him in the back of the head.

The incident occurred during a game in Kingston last weekend and was reviewed by commissioner David Branch.

DeLory, a six-foot-five defenceman who signed with the Florida Panthers last summer, was assessed a match penalty on the play.

"The actions of DeLory were most concerning, both the inappropriate use of the stick and the subsequent physical interaction with his opponent," said Branch.

Earlier this season, the OHL gave Frontenacs defenceman Zack Fenwick a 15-game suspension after he sucker-punched an Oshawa player.
