John Scott Suspended
After meeting with Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott on Halloween morning, the National Hockey League has officially levied a suspension on Scott following a hit on Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson.
This is the second time in the 2013-14 NHL season that Buffalo finds themselves with a league-suspended player due to an illegal hit.
Scott has already voluntarily sat out the past three Sabres games, while awaiting his hearing in New York City.
John Scott will be eligible to return to the Sabres lineup on Thursday, November 7, when the Sabres take on the Sharks in San Jose.
