from Jason Van Rassel of the Calgary Herald,
Former Calgary Flames forward Brett Sutter has pleaded guilty to punching a cab driver during a road trip in Arizona.
Sutter, 24, pleaded guilty in Scottsdale City Court on Monday to disorderly conduct and received a fine of $323.60 US in connection with the incident outside a sports bar in the Phoenix suburb on Nov. 11, 2010.
Sutter, who was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes a few days after the incident, is scheduled back in Scottsdale court on Sept. 15 for a restitution hearing.
Under Arizona law, victims can claim financial restitution. The hearing in September will determine how much compensation Sutter must pay.
