NHL.com @NHL
TORONTODallas Stars forward Steve Ott has been suspended for one game, without pay, as a result of an altercation during NHL game #925 against the Anaheim Ducks, the National Hockey League announced today.

Ott, who was suspended for three games in March 2008, now is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.  Accordingly, he forfeits $17,385.05 in salary based on the number of games in the season (82), rather than the number of days (186).  The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund. 

At the 20:00 mark of the third period, Ott and Anaheim forward Travis Moen engaged in an altercation at which time Moen sustained an injury.  Ott was assessed a major penalty for fighting and a match penalty for attempt to injure under Rule 21.1.

Ott, who served his suspension on March 1 against Pittsburgh, is eligible to return tomorrow night when the Stars play the Sharks in San Jose.
