Kariya suspended indefinitely for slash

NEW YORK -- Anaheim Mighty Ducks star Paul Kariya was suspended indefinitely, pending a hearing, for slashing Minnesota Wild forward Aaron Gavey during a preseason game.

Kariya slashed Gavey at 15:43 of the third period of Minnesota's 3-1 victory Friday night. Kariya was given a match penalty for attempting to injure.

Kariya is suspended until a hearing is conducted. No date for the hearing has been set.

BLACKHAWKS: Tony Amonte was named team captain by coach Alpo Suhonen and general manager Mike Smith. The captaincy was vacated on March 10 when Doug Gilmour was traded to Buffalo.

"It's truly a great honor," said Amonte, a 30-year-old right wing who came to the Hawks in March 1994 in a trade with the New York Rangers. "I hope I can lead by example and not change the way I play and the way I act."

PREDATORS: Free-agent defenseman Kimmo Timonen re-signed and terms were not disclosed.

Timonen, 25, set franchise records for a defenseman last season with 25 assists and 33 points. He was named to the World Team at the All-Star Game but did not play because of injury.

Timonen appeared in just 51 games last season, missing time with both a broken wrist and knee injury. He finished second on the team with 16 power-play points and was third in assists.

RED WINGS: Senior vice president Jim Devellano signed a four-year contract extension through 2004. Devellano, 57, is entering his 19th season with the team.

Saturday's games

BRUINS 3, SABRES 1: Kyle McLaren scored short-handed and Mike Knubel scored on the power play for host Boston. The loss was the first in eight preseason games for the Sabres. Boston goalie Byron Dafoe made 17 saves. Dominik Hasek made 22 saves.

BLUE JACKETS 4, PANTHERS 3: Robert Kron scored the winner from in front of the net with 1:41 remaining for Columbus in Louisville, Ky. Ron Tugnutt made 28 saves for the Blue Jackets.

Dan Boyle scored from in front of the net to tie at 2 with 14:21 to play. But Geoff Sanderson beat Trevor Kidd to give Columbus a 3-2 lead with 9:10 remaining.

CAPITALS 2, FLYERS 1: Calle Johansson scored the winning goal with 2:30 left in the third period for host Washington. Richard Zednik also scored and Steve Konowalchuk added two assists.

Craig Billington, expected to shoulder the load until Vezina Trophy winner Olaf Kolzig returns from arthroscopic knee surgery in mid-October, made 22 saves.

HURRICANES 3, THRASHERS 0: Jeff O'Neill scored in his preseason debut, and Tyler Moss stopped 13 shots for the host Hurricanes. O'Neill, who had a career-high 25 goals last season, missed the team's first six games because of a neck strain.

COYOTES 2, MIGHTY DUCKS 1: Jeremy Roenick and Louie DeBrusk had goals, and Sean Burke stopped 25 shots for the host Coyotes. DeBrusk one-timed a cross-crease pass from Wyatt Smith for a 2-0 lead with 13:25 to play. Phoenix had two players in the penalty box as Patrick Traverse scored for Anaheim with 11 seconds remaining.

BLUES 4, PREDATORS 0: Roman Turek made 36 saves for visiting St. Louis. Bryce Salvador's slap shot off the skate of Nashville defenseman Craig Millar gave St. Louis the lead four minutes into the game.

RED WINGS 2, STARS 2: Thomas Holmstrom's second power-play goal of the game with just under two minutes remaining in the third period salvaged a tie for visiting Detroit.

Senior vice president Jim Devellano signed a four-year contract extension with the Red Wings through 2004.

SENATORS 3, CANADIENS 0: Patrick Lalime made 17 saves. Magnus Arvedson, David Oliver and Shawn MacEachern scored as Ottawa outshot host Montreal 29-17.

Ottawa defenseman Sami Salo left in the first period with a bruised right ankle.

Montreal assigned right wing Arron Asham to the Quebec Citadelles of the AHL, and defenseman Sheldon Souray will miss two weeks with an abdominal strain.

CAPITALS 2, FLYERS 1: Calle Johansson scored the winning goal with 2:30 left in the third period for host Washington. Richard Zednik also scored and Steve Konowalchuk added two assists.

Craig Billington, expected to shoulder the load until Vezina Trophy winner Olaf Kolzig returns from arthroscopic knee surgery in mid-October, made 22 saves.

Late Friday

OILERS 2, FLAMES 2: Daniel Cleary scored a power-play goal with 2:05 remaining to give host Edmonton a tie. Patrick Cote also scored for the Oilers, and Toni Lydman and Rico Fata scored for Calgary.

BLACKHAWKS 4, PREDATORS 3: Steve Sullivan scored twice as host Chicago snapped an 0-for-38 power-play drought.

KINGS 2, SHARKS 1: Jamie Storr stopped 22 shots and barely missed his second straight shutout. Bryan Smolinski scored the winning goal early in the third period.
