Sabres F Ville Leino suspended for 1 game

NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL has suspended Buffalo Sabres forward Ville Leino one game without pay for elbowing Philadelphia Flyers forward Matt Read.

The incident occurred at 1:32 in the third period of the Flyers' 5-4 overtime victory on Wednesday night. No penalty was assessed on the play.

Leino will miss the Sabres' home game against Florida on Friday night. He will be eligible to return Saturday when Buffalo hosts the New York Rangers.

The NHL announced the discipline on Thursday. Leino will forfeit $24,324.32 in pay.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
