via Bob McKenzie tweet,

Two game suspension for @scottieupshall for last night’s hit on PHI’s Oskar Bartulis.

Missed the hit?... watch it here.

added 5:16pm,

TORONTO (February 23, 2011)—Phoenix Coyotes left wing Scottie Upshall has been suspended for two games and will forfeit $24,193.54 for an illegal hit delivered to Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Oskars Bartulis in NHL game #895 last night, the National Hockey League announced today.

The incident occurred at 0:17 of the second period. Upshall hit an unsuspecting Bartulis, who was injured on the play. Upshall was assessed a minor penalty for boarding.

Upshall’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.

any ideas on how this is a 2 game suspension, and the cheap shot hit sharp gives paul martin is nothing at all?

Martin will miss his second game in a row now because of that cheap shot.

I’m shocked. I assume Upshall is a repeat offender? It was definitely worth more than 2 minutes.
