Was it worth it, Jarkko? Ruutu suspended for two
Ottawa’s Jarkko Ruutu has been suspended for two games by the NHL for a biting incident that occurred in Tuesday night’s loss to Buffalo.
Ruutu was suspended after a Wednesday morning’s disciplinary hearing with NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell, a phone conversation between the two parties that began at 11:30 a.m.
In Tuesday’s incident, Ruutu bit the gloved thumb of Buffalo’s Andrew Peters, breaking the skin’s surface, during a first-period altercation.
