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

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
