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.
Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
