Flyers' Shelley suspended two games

Philadelphia Flyers forward Jody Shelley has been suspended for two games for his actions in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Shelley was given a match penalty at 12:29 of the third period after a punch to the head of the Canucks' Andrew Alberts during a scrum.

He'll miss games Thursday at the Los Angeles Kings and Friday at the Anaheim Ducks, and he'll forfeit $26,829.27 in salary. The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

This was Shelley's first game since a two-game suspension for a hit on Boston's Adam McQuaid on Dec. 11. After sitting out for two games, he was a healthy scratch for the next two.
Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
