NHL Suspends Leafs’ Phil Kessel for Remainder of Preseason, Fines Sabres Coach After Massive Line Brawl

The NHL has handed down more punishment following the gigantic line brawl that erupted in Sunday night’s game between the Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Toronto Mapple Leafs: Forward Phil Kessel Suspended for the Rest of the Pre-Season

Well, that was swift, the wheel of justice has been spun. I think Kessel's suspension should be longer, because this is the second stick swinging incident for the Leafs star forward in the pre-season. That's unacceptable and that needs to be addressed going forward. We don't want the NHL to start resembling the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation or the movie Slap Shot. Apparently...

Phil Kessel Hockey Pool Picks 2013 2014

Phil Kessel of the Toronto Maple Leafs is the #10 forward points-only hockey pool pick. He is an American born right winger who is 25 years old. Kessel showed last season that he is an amazing playmaker as well as a sniper. He is the Maple Leafs’ franchise player and an excellent addition to your fantasy team. A downside to drafting is he gets frustrated when he is not scoring goals and

Leafs-Sabres brawl through exhibition

Buffalo Sabres tough guy John Scott was looking for a fight. The Toronto Maple Leafs weren't happy when he picked Phil Kessel as his opponent. Kessel, who had scored twice in the Leafs' 5-3 preseason win Sunday night, is 6-foot even, and Scott is 6-8. The two aren't even close to being in the same weight class and Kessel wasn't inclined to get involved. Kessel backtracked...

NHL Preseason Excitement

Generally all forms of preseason action are pretty boring, unless you’re watching Hard Knocks of course. Apparently the Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t get this memo, as Sunday night’s preseason affair was played with the intensity of a rivalry playoff game. Already in the third period, things escalated quickly as Buffalo’s fighter, John Scott (6’8, 270 pounds...

Video: Buffalo Sabres, Toronto Maple Leafs have huge brawl in preseason game

This is absolutely crazy. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres got into a massive brawl in a preseason game on Sunday night that even included a goalie fight. And if you’re anything like me, you love a good goalie fight. The brawl began when Sabres heavyweight John Scott initiated a fight with Toronto’s Phil Kessel with 10:01 left in the third period. That came after a...

Clarkson to play preseason game

The Maple Leafs will have suspended forward David Clarkson in their lineup Tuesday night for a preseason game against the Ottawa Senators, but will be without Phil Kessel.

Preseason Suspensions Impact Fantasy Hockey

Sam Gagner shows off his broken jaw in a picture from his Twitter feed. Can someone explain what has been going on this preseason?

Toronto forward Phil Kessel has a disciplinary hearing this afternoon to discuss his role in a preseason...

Nobody Behaved During Tonight’s Maple Leafs-Sabres Preseason Game

Brendan Shanahan’s Sunday night just got a lot busier. The NHL’s police chief will have his hands full tonight as he decides who needs to be suspended after the Sabres and Maple Leafs engaged in some extra curricular activity during a preseason rendezvous at The Air Canada Centre. Things got testy when Buffalo’s resident goon, John Scott, decided to break “the code” by...

Sabres Coach Ron Rolston Fined

(AP Photo/The Canadian Press, Frank Gunn) If there was ever a reason to simply laugh at the way the NHL is run in terms of supplementary discipline, this may be that reason: the NHL has fined Sabres head coach Ron Rolston for “player selection and team conduct.” You read that right, a coach has been fined for putting a player out on the ice who was already of there in the first...
