Heeter feels the heat with two-game ban

Better late than never.

While most of us were hyperventilating over what a second meeting between the Flyers and New York Rangers would entail, the ECHL gave Trenton goaltender Cal Heeter a two-game suspension for his puck-firing stunt over the weekend.

If you recall, Heeter, recently sent down from the Phantoms to the Titans, was so upset with giving up a goal to Wheeling on Saturday night, that he cleared the puck over the glass and into the stands in frustration.

He was given a game misconduct, suspended indefinitely on Sunday and fined an undisclosed amount pending a review, which took place on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old will bite the bullet and sit out games at Florida tonight and on Friday, and then is eligible to return when the Titans head up to Orlando for a Saturday evening matchup.

Also on Wednesday, the Titans placed forward Paul Lee on reserve, welcomed forward Kevin Baker after being acquired from the Everblades, and waved goodbye to Brad Peltz who was recalled by the Binghamton Senators in the AHL.

Vince Williams’ club heads into this brief Southern road swing at 17-20-6 with a two-game losing streak that included ending up on the wrong end of an 8-1 rout at Elmira on Sunday.
