Toronto Maple Leafs forward David Clarkson is considering appealing his 10-game suspension.
Clarkson was automatically assessed the ban when he left the bench on Sunday night to participate in a brawl with the Buffalo Sabres.
Because Clarkson's suspension is more than five games, the appeal process could include an independent arbitrator.
Any appeal would first be heard by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, but if he were to uphold the suspension, Clarkson could bring the appeal to an arbitrator.
The suspension to me is pretty much black and white. He left the bench and became involved in the brawl. End of story.
