Stars forward Garbutt suspended five games for charging Anaheim's Penner

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NHL has suspended Dallas Stars forward Ryan Garbutt five games for charging Anaheim forward Dustin Penner.

The incident occurred at 6:28 of the first period in Anaheim's 6-3 home win over Dallas on Sunday. Garbutt left the penalty box and skated at Penner before leaving his skates to deliver a check. He hit Penner in the head, and the Anaheim forward had to leave the game.

Penner didn't travel with the team for a road game in Toronto on Tuesday.

No penalty was called on the play.

Garbutt will forfeit US$14,743.60 in salary. He is eligible to return for the Stars' Nov. 3 game in Ottawa.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
