Clarkson to Play Preseason Dispite Suspension

David_Clarkson_2013TORONTO – David Clarkson will play in the Maple Leafs’ pre-season game against the Senators tonight.

Clarkson received an automatic 10-game suspension for leaving the bench to join a fight, but that does not begin until the start of the regular season Oct. 1.

Until then, Clarkson is free to play exhibition games.

Leafs coach Randy Carlyle says it’s important for Clarkson to play as much as possible now before he’s sent to the sidelines to serve the suspension.
