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.
We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
