The NHL handed down a one-game suspension to the Sabres’ Andrew Peters this morning. This comes after he involved himself in an altercation that was on the ice while he was on the bench. Peters reached over the boards and punch Colton Orr multiple times. Both players were given 10-minute Misconducts. Peters was probably still upset over having his ass handed to him early in the first period (the altercation at the end of regulation is also in this video):
Peters suspension is without pay meaning that he forfeits $2807.49. That money will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
Peters will not play tonight against the Penguins.
Colton Orr is waiting for the 2008-2009 schedule to be released so he can mark down on his calendar when Andrew Peters will receive his next severe beat-down.
