TORONTO – Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mike Brown has been suspended for three games and will forfeit $8,669.34 in salary for delivering a lateral hit to the head of Phoenix Coyotes player Ed Jovanovski in NHL game #651 last night, the National Hockey League announced today.

Brown'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 19:03 of the second period. No penalty was assessed on the play.

Brown will miss games Saturday's game against Calgary, Jan. 19 at the New York Rangers and Jan. 20 against Anaheim.  He will be eligible to return Jan. 22 against Washington.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
