NHL suspends Coyotes' Carcillo for two games

Friday, 10.17.2008 / 11:50 AM / News
TORONTOPhoenix Coyotes' left wing Daniel Carcillo has been suspended for two games, without pay, as a result of an altercation during NHL game #46 against the Chicago Blackhawks, October 15, the National Hockey League announced today.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Carcillo will forfeit $9,610.22. The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

At 17:00 of the second period, Carcillo, who was on the players' bench, became involved with Blackhawks' player Ben Eager, who was on the ice.

Carcillo will miss tonight's game at Ottawa and Oct. 18 at Montreal. He will be eligible to return Oct. 23 against the Washington Capitals.



I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
