Former NHL tough guy Andre Deveaux has reportedly been suspended until February 2016 for his vicious slash on Vasteras IK’s Per Helmersson prior to a game last month in Sweden.

The 31-year-old, who played 31 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers, has already had his contract terminated.

Deveaux says he went after Helmersson because of an incident in a previous game.
