LA Kings Defenseman Sean O’Donnell Suspended

During the Los Angeles Kings’ pre-season game on September 22, a 4-2 victory over the New York Islanders at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Kings defenseman Sean O’Donnell went after Matt Martin of the Islanders after he high-sticked Kings defenseman Drew Doughty.

O’Donnell was assessed a match penalty on the play and has been suspended by the National Hockey League. Here is their press release:


TORONTO — Los Angeles Kings’ defenseman Sean O’Donnell has been suspended for the remainder of the Kings’ pre-season schedule and two regular season games as the result of a match penalty in a pre-season game against the New York Islanders, September 22, the National Hockey League announced today.

    Way to go Sean. I thought Dean believed he was a “good influence in the room…”?

  2. Gann Matsuda says:

    Given that he was retaliating for the high stick on Doughty (no penalty was handed out for that), I doubt anyone with the Kings has a problem with O’Donnell’s actions.

    That IS the good influence that I want out of the mentor :-)
