    NHL suspends Ducks owner Samueli indefinitely day after guilty plea

    NEW YORK -- Anaheim Ducks owner Henry Samueli has been suspended indefinitely by the NHL.

    The decision by commissioner Gary Bettman comes a day after Samueli pleaded guilty to one count of making a false statement to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    His sentencing is Aug. 18. The NHL will then review Samueli's status and set the length of his suspension.

    During his suspension, Samueli can't be involved in Ducks matters or activities. Michael Schulman will be responsible for the club's day-to-day operations.

    Samueli is the billionaire co-founder of Broadcom Corp., a Southern California computer chip maker.

    Mr. Samueli pleaded guilty to one count of lying to an SEC (Securities Exchange Commission) investigator about key employees of Broadband who exercised some stock options. Henry Samueli was not the main player and only had minor and peripheral involvement.

    Even Bettman said he had to suspend the Ducks owner per league rules.

    Ironic that a convicted like George Bush can be President of the USA but a guy who fibbed to SEC agent can't run a hockey team.
