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.
