AHL issues one-game suspension to St. John's IceCaps defenceman Will O'Neill

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - St. John's IceCaps defenceman Will O'Neill was suspended for one game by the American Hockey League on Monday.

It's a result of O'Neill's match penalty for cross-checking in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last Saturday.

O'Neill will miss Game 6 on Tuesday. The IceCaps have a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
