DUCKS REPORT

Fedorov Suspended for Hit on Marshall

March 29, 1998| Associated Press

Detroit's Sergei Fedorov was suspended Saturday for at least two games by the NHL for checking Jason Marshall of the Mighty Ducks from behind.

Fedorov, who will have a hearing Monday, sat out Saturday's game at St. Louis and also will sit out today's game against Buffalo.

The hit came during the first period Thursday night when Fedorov, playing his 13th game since ending a long holdout, delivered a blindside hit that sent Marshall headfirst into the boards. He was given a five-minute major penalty.
