TORONTO (Dec. 8, 2006) – St. Louis Blues forward Dallas Drake has been suspended for two games, without pay, as a result of delivering a hit to the head area of Detroit Red Wing defenseman Brett Lebda during NHL game #415 on December 7.
The incident occurred at 14:57 of the first period. No penalty was assessed on the play.
Drake, who was suspended for two games in October, 2005, is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and forfeits salary based on the number of games in a season (82), rather than the number of days (187). He will forfeit $26,829.26. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
Drake will miss Saturday’s game against Columbus and Dec. 12 against Chicago. He will be eligible to return Dec. 13 at Colorado.
