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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
