last paragraphs of the article about the Everett game
Spokane coach Bill Peters benched star forward Michael Grabner, a first-round selection of the Vancouver Canucks (14th overall), in the second period.
"Michael took himself out of the game because he was non-committed," Peters said. "The game was at a physical level that he didn't want to play at. He's healthy. The only thing that might be hurt is his pride, and it should be hurt. It's embarrassing for a first-round pick to play like that in that type of hockey game."
