TORONTOMinnesota Wild defenseman Brent Burns has been suspended for two games, without pay, for careless use of his stick in an incident with Florida Panthers' player Steve Bernier at the conclusion of NHL game #230 on November 12, 2010.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Burns will forfeit $38,172.04. The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Burns will miss games Nov. 14 at Tampa Bay and Nov. 17 against Anaheim. He is eligible to return Nov. 19 at Detroit.
Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
