UFA, RUSSIA - JC Lipon couldn’t keep his emotions in check any longer.
A few tears rolled down his cheeks, and he glanced at a reporter and said, “Sorry, man.”
With that, Lipon rubbed his eyes and disappeared through a side door in the mixed zone at the Ufa Arena to head back to the Canada dressing room.
An hour or so earlier Saturday, Lipon learned he had been suspended by the International Ice Hockey Federation for one game at the 2013 World Junior Hockey Championship.
