Flames Jokinen suspended for three games
TORONTO – Calgary Flames' forward Olli Jokinen has been suspended for three games and will forfeit $48,387.09 in salary for a cross check to the head of Phoenix Coyotes player Wojtek Wolski in NHL Game #266 on Nov. 17, 2010.

Jokinen's fine is based on his average annual salary and is calculated under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

The incident occurred at 10:32 of the third period and Jokinen was assessed a major penalty for cross checking and a game misconduct. 

Jokinen will miss the Flames next three games – Nov. 19 vs. Chicago, Nov. 21 at Detroit and Nov. 22 at New York Rangers. He is eligible to return Nov. 24 at New Jersey.
Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
