Sutton Expecting Suspension Today

from TSN,
For all the verbal barbs exchanged, for all the mayhem on the ice, when all is said and done, the only player who will be suspended as a result of Friday night's game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Atlanta Thrashers is Atlanta defenceman Andy Sutton. TSN has learned the NHL had a disciplinary hearing with Sutton on the telephone this morning and will announce a suspension, probably this afternoon, of four games or less.
more update 4:18pm, The NHL suspended Atlanta Thrashers defenceman Andy Sutton for four games for delivering a blow to the head of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Darcy Tucker in a game. Sutton won't be paid for the games missed as a result of the suspension, which began Saturday night with Atlanta's game in New York against the Rangers. The $38,775.52 US that Sutton will forfeit goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
