Suspension

On April 20, 2007, Hill became the first player to be suspended for abusing the performance enhancing substance policy the NHL and NHLPA have put in place. Hill began the mandatory 20 game suspension in Game 5 of the Islanders' Eastern Conference Quarter-Final versus the Buffalo Sabres. The Islanders lost the game and were eliminated from the playoffs. Islanders General Manager Garth Snow said that he supported the league's decision to suspend Hill.[1] Hill, who was signed by the Minnesota Wild as a free agent in July 2007, would be required to sit out the first 19 games of the 2007/08 season without pay. In July, Hill passed both a lie detector test and independent drug test regarding his substance abuse. In a statement, the Wild said, "We believe Sean did not knowingly take any banned performance-enhancing substance."[2] Hill returned to the lineup on November 21, 2007, after completing the 20-game suspension.[2]
