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.
It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
