NHL suspends Staubitz, Wisniewski pending hearings
Minnesota Wild forward Brad Staubitz and Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman James Wisniewski have been suspended indefinitely pending a hearing and the completion of a review by the NHL's Department of Player Safety for separate incidents that took place in Friday night's preseason game between the teams.

Staubitz received a major penalty and game misconduct for checking from behind 4:24 into the third period of Minnesota's 4-3 overtime victory. Wisniewski received a minor penalty for an illegal check to the head of Minnesota forward Cal Clutterbuck at the 20:00 mark of the third.

The suspensions were announced by NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan.
Quote of the Day

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
