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.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
