Avs' Tucker suspended for one game
The National Hockey League on Tuesday suspended Colorado Avalanche forward Darcy Tucker for one game, without pay, for making excessive physical contact on an icing play in Monday's game at Los Angeles.

Tucker was assessed a minor penalty for tripping Kings defenseman Matt Greene on the play, which occurred at 10:13 of the third period. He will miss Wednesday's rematch against the Kings at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Tucker will forfeit $11,658.03.  The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.


Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
