TORONTO (November 18, 2010) – Calgary Flames’ forward Olli Jokinen has been suspended for three games and will forfeit $48,387.09 in salary for a cross check to the head of
Phoenix Coyotes player Wojtek Wolski in NHL game #266 on November 17, 2010.
Jokinen’s fine is based on his average annual salary and is calculated under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
The incident occurred at 10:32 of the third period and Jokinen was assessed a major penalty for cross checking and a game misconduct.
