Swedish league suspends Deveaux until Feb. 2016


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.
