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."
