Andy Sutton suspended indefinitely
In Wednesday's game, Sutton left his feet while checking Ponikarovsky against the boards. Sutton has been offered the option of an in-person hearing, the league said.
Under the league's collective bargaining agreement, the offer of an in-person hearing means the league could suspend Sutton for six games or more if it chooses to do so.
