Looks like he is, as expected, done for the season anyhow:
Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said the organization would respect the QMJHL's ruling.
"We will honour the league's suspension, have not considered, and will not explore other avenues for his return this season," Lamoriello said in a team release. "We are pleased to hear Mikael Tam is doing well. Our thoughts are with him for a full recovery."
Lamoriello said the Devils organization does not condone Cormier's actions but also defended the player they picked 54th overall back in 2008.
"This unfortunate incident does not reflect the character of the Patrice Cormier we know," added Lamoriello. "We trust that Patrice will have learned a valuable lesson that will serve him well when he returns to hockey as a valued player in our organization."
