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

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.
