Sting forward Craig Hottot suspended 10 games for hit on Guelph's Horvat

TORONTO - Sarnia Sting forward Craig Hottot has been suspended 10 games by the Ontario Hockey League for an illegal hit on Guelph's Ryan Horvat.

Hottot hit Horvat in neutral ice in the Sting's 6-3 loss Saturday in Guelph.

Horvat left the game and Hottot was initially assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for checking to the head.

Hottot's suspension includes Sarnia's 5-3 loss to the Kitchener Rangers on Saturday, in which he didn't play.

Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version had the wrong name for the player who was hit in the head.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
