NEW YORK (January 11, 2010)—Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Ed Jovanovski has been suspended for two games, without pay, for elbowing New York Islanders center John Tavares in NHL game #669 on Jan. 9, the National Hockey League announced today.
Jovanovski, who was suspended for two games on Dec. 9, 2009, now is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Accordingly, he forfeits $158,536.59 in salary based on the number of games (82) in a season, rather than the number of days (193). The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
At 19:43 of the first period, Jovanovski delivered an elbow to Tavares’ head area and was assessed a major penalty for elbowing and a game misconduct.
