Oilers' Sutton suspended for hit on Colorado's Landeskog pending NHL hearing

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Edmonton Oilers defenceman Andy Sutton was suspended Saturday for a hit to the head of Colorado Avalanche forward Gabriel Landeskog.

The length of Sutton's suspension is pending a hearing on Monday with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan at the league's office in New York.

Sutton delivered an elbow to Landeskog's head at the 3:20 mark of the third period in Edmonton's 3-1 victory Friday. The Oilers' defenceman was assessed a minor penalty for elbowing on the play.

The Kingston, Ont., native will miss the Oilers' game Sunday against the St. Louis Blues.
