Sabres forward Scott suspended 7 games for hit to head on Boston's Eriksson

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NHL has suspended Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott for seven games for his illegal check to Boston forward Loui Eriksson's head.

Scott already has served three games while waiting for an in-person hearing, which was held Thursday morning.

Scott was issued a match penalty for charging and ejected for his hit on Eriksson early in the third period of Boston's 5-2 win on Oct. 23.

Eriksson was skating through the neutral zone and had just dumped the puck into the Sabres zone when Scott skated in from the player's right and struck him with a shoulder to the face.

Eriksson suffered a concussion and spent the night in a Buffalo hospital after the hit. He has yet to return to Boston's lineup.

The multi-game suspension will cost Scott US$26,923.05 in salary. He is eligible to return Nov. 8 when Buffalo visits Anaheim.
