NEW YORK (AP) - Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott was suspended for seven games without pay by the NHL on Thursday for his illegal check to Boston forward Loui Eriksson's head.
    
Scott received a match penalty for the hit in the Sabres' 5-2 home loss Oct. 23.
    
Scott skated in from Eriksson's right and leveled him with a shoulder to the face. Ericksson sustained a concussion and is sidelined indefinitely.
    
The suspension will cost Scott $26,923. He has served three games of the suspension while awaiting an in-person hearing
