Andy Sutton wasn't sure what the league's reaction to his hit on Gabriel Landeskog would be following the Edmonton Oilers 3-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Friday.

The Oilers defenceman will find out Monday, summoned to a hearing in New York with the NHL's disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan.

Sutton was assessed an elbowing minor, then took on Shane O'Brien in an ensuing fight after unloading on Landeskog in the neutral zone.

"You usually figure someone is coming at you, especially when you hit a young guy," Sutton said. "But O'Brien does a great job, he knows his role out there, I have a lot of respect for him.

"I don't know what's going to happen, but I'd do it again."

Sutton is suspended for the Oilers contest against the St. Louis Blues on Sunday pending the hearing.

Considering the length of suspensions Shanahan was handing out in the pre-season and the fact Sutton is considered a repeat offender, he could be out of the Oilers lineup for some time.

As a member of the New York Islanders, Sutton was suspended for two games in January 2010 after a hit on Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis.

It would be a big loss for the Oilers who have played exceptionally well defensively this season and are already without the services of Ryan Whitney, who injured his knee on Tuesday in a game against the Vancouver Canucks.

In Denver, the Oilers were once again stingy defensively in their win over the Avalanche.
