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

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
