Calgary Flames forward Milan Lucic has been suspended for two games without pay for roughing Columbus Blue Jackets forward Kole Sherwood during a game Saturday.
Lucic was assessed two minor penalties for roughing. Sherwood left the game after the incident but later returned.
The league said in an explanatory video that Lucic’s history of “recent and similar punches” raised Saturday’s play to the level of a suspension. Lucic has been fined once and suspended once for punching other opponents since 2016.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and, based on his average annual salary, Lucic will forfeit $64,516.12. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
