Edmonton Oilers defenseman Andy Sutton will have an in-person disciplinary hearing Monday with the League's Department of Player Safety in New York after a hit on Colorado forward Gabriel Landeskog during their game Friday night at Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo.
He has been suspended for Edmonton's game Sunday against St. Louis ahead of the hearing. Sutton hit Landeskog in the neutral zone early in the third period. He received a two-minute minor penalty for elbowing on the play.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
