Sabres forward John Scott suspended 7 games

Thursday - 10/31/2013, 7:12pm  ET

NEW YORK (AP) -- Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott was suspended for seven games without pay by the NHL on Thursday for his illegal check to Boston forward Loui Eriksson's head.

Scott received a match penalty for the hit in the Sabres' 5-2 home loss Oct. 23.

Scott skated in from Eriksson's right and leveled him with a shoulder to the face. Ericksson sustained a concussion and is sidelined indefinitely.

The suspension will cost Scott $26,923. He has served three games of the suspension while awaiting an in-person hearing.
