Walker May Be Facing Suspension

from the News & Observer,

Scott Walker may be facing a suspension after the Carolina Hurricanes forward head-butted Ottawa Senators forward Mike Fisher in the face during a fight on Wednesday night.

After Walker collided with Senators goalie Martin Gerber early in the second period of Carolina’s 6-0 loss, Fisher fought Walker and cut him under the left eye. Walker head-butted Fisher, earning a match penalty for attempt to injure. Fisher said he chipped one tooth and may have lost another.

Walker was ejected from the game and now faces an automatic review from the NHL.

“It was cheap. It caught me off guard,” Fisher said. “I’m sure he will get some games for it. He ran the goalie. He made no attempt to get away, and I just wanted to let him know he can’t do that.”
