Trevor Gillies Returns Tomorrow

from Dyan LeBourdais of Islanders.com,

On Friday morning, as Andrew MacDonald was talking to the media, breaking the bad news that his season is finished, Islanders forward Trevor Gillies was on the ice at the Coliseum getting his practice in before returning to the line up tomorrow night against the Flyers.

“It’s great to have him back,” said oft-linemate Matt Martin. “He’s a big part of our team. He’ll stand up for any one of us and he went through a bit of a tough stretch with a couple suspensions. But I played with him all last year. I’ve never really seen him suspended.”

Martin continued, “It was tough for him, but he handled it well and he’s been very supportive of the guys. We’re very supportive of him as well. It’s definitely good to have him back.”

If there’s another idiot that needs a timeout for the rest of the season, it’s this guy.

Matt Martin needs a memory refresher.

Gillies was suspended 2 games in October of last year for sucker-punching Robert Bortuzzo after he (Gillies, not Bortuzzo) boarded somebody, pinning him (Bortuzzo) under his knee and beating him while he was unconscious.

IIRC, he was also suspended for too many match penalties associated with several other incidents in which he sucker-punched and/or boarded then sucker-punched other players.

Complete coward.

There should be a pool for how many minutes until his next suspension.
