OHL suspends Greyhounds defenceman Kevin Spinozzi eight games for illegal hit

TORONTO - Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds defenceman Kevin Spinozzi has been suspended eight games by the Ontario Hockey League after an illegal hit on Sarnia's Davis Brown.

Spinozzi hit the Sting forward during the second period of Sarnia's 3-1 win Sunday.

Brown, who was skating in open ice without the puck when he was hit, left the game and Spinozzi was initially assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for checking to the head.

Spinozzi's suspension includes the Greyhounds 3-1 win over the Sudbury Wolves on Wednesday, in which he didn't play.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
