TORONTO (January 14, 2011) – Nashville Predators defenseman Shane O’Brien has been suspended for two games and will forfeit $39,024.40 in salary for a high-sticking incident against Stephen Weiss of the Florida Panthers in NHL game #650, January 13, the National Hockey League announced today.

O’Brien, who was suspended for one game on November 3, 2009, is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.  Accordingly, he forfeits his salary based on the number of games in the season (82), rather than the number of days (186).  The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

      O’Brien will miss both of Nashville’s weekend games—a home and home series with the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday and Sunday
