OLLI JOKINEN STATEMENT
“I disagree with the League’s decision to suspend me for three games. I believed from our discussion this morning that there was an understanding that my intent was not to injure and circumstances that resulted in my stick going higher then expected. While I am upset with the ruling, I will abide by it and serve my three games while preparing to help my team when I return. I will have no further say on the matter.”
CALGARY FLAMES STATEMENT
“We are very disappointed that the League has ruled this incident worthy of a three game suspension for Olli. However, we respect both the review process and the League’s decision.”
