Second suspension for defenseman
Gauthier received a major and game misconduct for kneeing Vancouver defenseman Sami Salo in the third period of Friday's 2-0 loss to the Canucks.
Gauthier was suspended for a game in November 2002, and is considered a repeat offender by the league. He will miss Sunday's game against Edmonton and Monday's contest against Minnesota.
