Sutton banned indefinitely, faces Saturday hearing
 
Edmonton defenseman Andy Sutton has a phone hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Saturday afternoon to discuss a hit delivered to Carolina's Alexei Ponikarovsky in the third period of Wednesday's game at Rexall Place.

On Thursday afternoon, Sutton was suspended indefinitely, pending a hearing. Sutton was offered the option of an in-person hearing.

The NHL suspended Sutton for five games earlier this season for a hit to the head of Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog during an Oct. 28 game in Denver.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
