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

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
