Bell suspended

Ouch. The National Hockey League lowered the boom on former Shark Mark Bell, traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs along with Vesa Toskala on Draft Day 2007, suspending the forward indefinitely after Bell pleaded guilty in August to charges stemming from his hit-and-run/drunk driving incident dating to exactly one year ago, Labor Day 2006. According to the TSN article, how soon Bell is eligible to return to the NHL will be under the discretion of the league's substance abuse program doctors. Those close to the Maple Leafs postulate that, even if Bell is cleared to return, it's likely he'll be suiting up for the Marlies rather than the Buds. Then again, with the likes of Nikolai Antropov and Bates Battaglia patrolling the Leafs' top line last season, they need all the offensive depth they can get.
