Kootenay Ice captain Brayden McNabb was been suspended one game Sunday for delivering a punishing elbow at the MasterCard Memorial Cup.



McNabb received a major and a game misconduct for hitting Owen Sound forward Joey Hishon during a 5-0 loss to the Attack on Saturday.



It's the first suspension at the Memorial Cup since 1999.

"Following review of the referee's report, and watching all of the television footage of the incident, I determined that it was a reckless action by the player but not a deliberate attempt to injure," discipline chairman Brian O'Neill said in a statement.



Kootenay was without McNabb for Sunday's game against Mississauga.
