10:42 AM ET 02.16 | Top NHL draft prospect Anthony DeAngelo of the Sarnia Sting was suspended eight games Friday by the Ontario Hockey League for harassing or abusing a teammate. The league announced the ban, believed to be the first time in OHL history that a player has been suspended for a violation of the league's Harassment and Abuse/Diversity Policy against a teammate, after investigating for more than a week, according to the Sarnia Observer. The Sting initially suspended DeAngelo after learning of the incident during a game against the Guelph Storm on Jan. 31 then turned the matter over to the league. "The matter reviewed was that of allegations of a Sarnia Sting player violating the League's Harassment and Abuse/Diversity Policy," the league said in a statement. "Based on such review, it is the position of the League that player Anthony DeAngelo of the Sarnia Sting Hockey Club did in fact make a most inappropriate statement to a teammate and shall be suspended for eight (8) games."

Vanna wouldn't sell me an 'o' for the word on, she said I'd be better off buying an inch instead.

Anthony DeAngelo = NHL's version of Richie Incognito. Nice! And just before his potential to 10 draft this summer. Dumb doesn't begin to describe it. Shades of Sean Avery. Does anybody want that kind of character in their locker room? Yet some dopey GM is going to call his name hoping he's a changed man by then.

Vanna's still alive? She must be ... what? Pushing 70 at about now? An inch might not be enough, my friend! ;-)

An old question; Is it better to touch the bottom of the well, or scrape the sides?

Well Anthony, your name's out there now, and for all the wrong reasons!

I like touching the bottom of the well myself .... just because I can. ;-)

They were worth it! You may like an American team, but you are rooting Canada eh Canuck eh? Eh?

Or are you following Burkie and those pesky Americans? ;)
