Leafs Clarkson Suspension Over, Season Debut Vs Blue Jackets

David_Clarkson_Toronto_2013 [1]David Clarkson took it on faith that the Maple Leafs could win without him.

That wait is almost over as Clarkson has served his 10-game suspension and will make his debut Friday night at the Columbus Blue Jackets. It’s fair to say he has been looking forward to this day for a long time.

Clarkson earned an automatic ban from the NHL for leaving the bench to enter an altercation in the pre-season when Toronto played the Buffalo Sabres. The veteran right-winger didn’t express much in the way of remorse for coming to the aid of Phil Kessel when he was matched up against tough guy John Scott, but regretted how the punishment affected the team.
