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

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
