John Scott suspended 7 games
Scott received a match penalty for the hit in the Sabres' 5-2 home loss Oct. 23.
Scott skated in from Eriksson's right and leveled him with a shoulder to the face. Eriksson sustained a concussion and is sidelined indefinitely.
The suspension will cost Scott $26,923. He has served three games of the suspension while awaiting an in-person hearing.
