WASHINGTON -- Eugene Melnyk hasn't given up his fight to prove Matt Cooke should have been found guilty.

The Senators' owner, who launched what he called a "forensic" investigation into whether the former Pittsburgh Penguins winger intentionally sliced defenceman Erik Karlsson's Achilles tendon last February, met with the NHL Monday in New York to inform commissioner Gary Bettman, deputy Bill Daly and VP of discipline Brendan Shanahan of the club's findings.

Sources confirmed to the Ottawa Sun that Melnyk was accompanied by Ottawa GM Bryan Murray, who took a break from the club's scouting meetings in Florida to attend the presentation with Melnyk. Cooke has since left the Penguins and signed with the Minnesota Wild as a free agent.
