NEW YORK (March 31, 2007)—For tonight’s New York Islanders’ game against the Ottawa Senators, the NHL is honoring the International Ice Hockey Federation’s request that the NHL enforce the German Ice Hockey League’s indefinite suspension of New York Islanders defenseman Todd Simpson.
The suspension was issued as the result of an abuse of official penalty assessed against Mr. Simpson while he was playing for the Hannover Scorpions of the German Ice Hockey League, in the Scorpions’ last play-off game against the Sinupret Ice Tigers.
The International Ice Hockey Federation has advised the NHL that the German Ice Hockey League will hold a hearing on Monday concerning the incident. The NHL will review the German Ice Hockey League’s determination when it is made and will thereafter determine Mr. Simpson’s status.
