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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
