caught head with his shoulder before went skating over to challange Sutton to a bout. The fight wasn't much to write about, but the hit is an interesting one.
Sutton is a for-real 6'6". Landeskog looks like he's being liberally listed at 6'1". Landeskog was also beant over a bit while skating, meaning Sutton's either going to hit Landeskog's head, or he needs to avoid Landeskog completely.
