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.

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
