Like father, like son: Hextall suspended by AHL

SPRINGFIELD, MA -- The American Hockey League announced on Saturday that Lehigh Valley Phantoms right wing Brett Hextall was suspended for onegame as a consequence of his actions in a game against Albany on Nov. 28. 

Hextall was assessed an instigator penalty for fighting Paul Thompson within the final five minutes of the third period, resulting in an automatic one-game suspension under the provisions of AHL Rule 46.22. 

Hextall will miss Lehigh Valley’s game tonight (Nov. 29) vs. Norfolk.

Lehigh Valley dropped a 4-2 decision to the Albany Devils in Atlantic City.

It's the first professional malfeasance for the 26-year-old Philadelphia native, North Dakota product and son of Flyers GM Ron Hextall -- who memorably racked up a whopping 26 games in three separate suspensions during his initial Philadelphia tenure.
