Owen Sound forward Stefano Pezzetta handed eight-game ban by OHL

LONDON, Ont. - The Ontario Hockey League handed down four suspensions Tuesday, including an eight-game ban to Owen Sound forward Stefano Pezzetta.

He was suspended for checking a player from behind in a game last Thursday against the Barrie Colts.

Mississauga Steelheads forward Josh Burnside was handed a six-game suspension for boarding a player in a game against the Belleville Bulls last Friday.

Erie Otters defenceman Cory Genovese was given a five-game ban for cross-checking a Windsor Spitfires player last Saturday. London Knights forward Max Domi was suspended for four games for delivering a check to the head of an opponent in last Sunday's game against the Guelph Storm.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
