Predators F Jordin Tootoo suspended for 2 games

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The NHL has suspended Nashville Predators forward Jordin Tootoo for two games without pay for charging Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller.

The league announced the suspension on Tuesday and said it will cost Tootoo $13,513 in missed salary, which will be donated to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Tootoo charged Miller during the second period in Saturday's game against the Sabres in Nashville. He was assessed a major penalty for charging and game misconduct.

He will miss games Tuesday night against Phoenix and Thursday at Columbus and will be eligible to return Dec. 10 against Anaheim.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
