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 don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
