The NHL continued to punish players who deliver illegal hits to opponents' heads when its Department of Player Safety suspended Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott seven games for his blow to the head of Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson. Scott appeared at a hearing at the league's New York offices Thursday morning. The ruling was issued Thursday afternoon. Scott will forfeit $26,923.05 to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund. The incident occurred Oct. 23. Brendan Shanahan, the league's vice president of player safety, said in this video the ruling was based in part on the fact that Scott “delivers a shoulder to Eriksson's head, making it the main point of contact and causing a serious injury” after Eriksson had dumped the puck.

At the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department headquarters, a winding hallway leads to an unexpected oasis. Surrounded by trees, with a built-in grill and tables, the patio is an ideal place for a barbecue. Until recently, though, only a select few enjoyed it, smoking cigars and fashioning it into their own private hangout. In his first week as interim sheriff, John Scott announced that the cigar patio, as it was called, would be open to all employees. A contest would be held to choose a new name and smoking would no longer be allowed.

The newly named interim sheriff of Los Angeles County, current Orange County Undersheriff John L. Scott, said Tuesday that he would continue the momentum of reform in the beleaguered department. Flanked by four of the five county supervisors, Scott said, "I can assure you, I'm not going to be a place-holder here in L.A. County. I will begin the process immediately of restoring both the dignity to the men and women of L.A. County and the confidence and trust of the public that we serve.

Good for incoming Los Angeles County Sheriff John L. Scott for making it clear that he has no intention of being a "place-holder" pending the election of a new sheriff. There are 10 months from now to early December, when the next sheriff will take the oath, and that's much too long a time to let the troubled department flounder, and much too short a time to squander a rare opportunity for a leader, unconcerned with elections or politics, to push through crucial reforms. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors appointed Scott on Tuesday to replace outgoing Sheriff Lee Baca, who over his 15-year tenure spoke eloquently about enlightened law enforcement and corrections while either protecting or ignoring a departmental culture that fostered inmate abuse, mismanagement, secrecy and defiance.

For months, a mysterious vandal has been slapping hundreds of "Who Is John Scott?" stickers on buses around Los Angeles. Authorities expected the vandalism to be the work of teenage "slap taggers," who hit buses, street signs and light poles with stickers advertising shoes, skateboards, music bands and sometime their own hand-drawn monikers. But the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's anti-graffiti detail got a surprise when it finally tracked down the man allegedly behind "Who Is John Scott?"

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: Plus + Despite being plagued by injuries - they lost four of their top six defensemen at one point - the Pittsburgh Penguins have won 12 of their last 14 games and lead the East.
