Leafs' Clarke MacArthur suspended for hit to head

NEW YORK (AP) - Toronto Maple Leafs forward Clarke MacArthur was suspended for the rest of preseason and two regular-season games on Saturday for hitting Detroit's Justin Abdelkader in the head.

This was the ninth suspension by new NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan during the preseason. Those bans total 31 regular-season games and close to $700,000 in lost salary.

MacArthur will de docked $35,135 and is eligible to return to Toronto's lineup Oct. 15 against Calgary.

His hit came late in the third period Friday of Toronto's 4-3 overtime road victory against the Red Wings. No penalty was assessed.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
