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

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
