For the Week of 10/29/01
Vaclav Varada - Buffalo Sabres
Varada was suspended after his involvement in a play that sent Montreal Canadiens goaltender Jose Theodore to the lockerroom with a concussion last week. Theodore tried playing a loose puck when Varada barreled into him with a knee to the head.

Theodore's teammate, Doug Gilmore, immediately went after Varada and called it "one of the worst cheap shots" he'd ever seen. Theodore was the second Montreal goalie to go out with an injury. Veteran Jeff Hackett injured his shoulder last Saturday -- also against Buffalo.

Mathieu Garon replaced Theodore and the Canadiens called up 18-year-old goaltender Olivier Michaud from the Quebec League's Shawinigan Cataractes on Saturday. Montreal also called up center Mike Ribeiro from Quebec of the AHL.

Both Varada and Gilmour were suspended by the league for one game.
