Anaheim Ducks defenseman James Wisniewski has been suspended for two games, without pay, for delivering a forearm blow to the head of Phoenix Coyotes forward Shane Doan on Oct. 31, the National Hockey League announced on Monday.
 
The Ducks lost the game, 3-2 in a shootout at Jobing.com Arena.
 
The incident occurred at 7:12 of the first period. No penalty was assessed on the play.
 
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Wisniewski will forfeit $28,497.40. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
 
Wisniewski will miss games on Tuesday against Pittsburgh on Thursday against Nashville. He will be eligible to return on Saturday against Phoenix.


Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
