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.

The last time I did it was 1994 and surprise, 20 years later it’s still working. I don’t do it very much, though. I don’t think I had it. I’m kind of surprised. It was probably because I went to church before the game.
