TORONTOColorado Avalanche forward Cody McCormick has been suspended for two games, without pay, for a high sticking incident in NHL Game #1014 against the Minnesota Wild, the National Hockey League announced today.

McCormick was assessed a double minor for high sticking Minnesota forward Cal Clutterbuck at 11:47 of the second period. 

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, McCormick will forfeit $5,618.28.  The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

McCormick will miss Saturday's game at Edmonton and March 15 at Vancouver.  He will be eligible to return March 17 when the Avalanche face the Wild in Minnesota.
Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
