Sutton banned indefinitely, faces Saturday hearing

by NHL.com
Edmonton defenseman Andy Sutton has a phone hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Saturday afternoon to discuss a hit delivered to Carolina's Alexei Ponikarovsky in the third period of Wednesday's game at Rexall Place.

On Thursday afternoon, Sutton was suspended indefinitely, pending a hearing. Sutton was offered the option of an in-person hearing.

The NHL suspended Sutton for five games earlier this season for a hit to the head of Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog during an Oct. 28 game in Denver.
