Looks like John Scott will have to miss trick or treating this Halloween. The Buffalo Sabres forward will be facing an in person hearing on October 31st for a hit on Loui Eriksson during the Sabres October 23rd game against the Boston Bruins. Scott received a match penalty for the hit and a five minute major for fighting as a result of an altercation with Adam McQuaid after the hit. This in person hearing will allow for NHL department of Player Safety to suspend him for five games or more. Eriksson did not return to the game and is currently out indefinitely with a concussion.
I’m not sure how many games Scott will get. It is a hard thing to predict nowadays but I think you guys could probably take a stab at it. How many games do you think Scott will get?
