NEW YORK (November 11, 2019) – Columbus Blue Jackets forward Nick Foligno has been suspended for three games, without pay, for elbowing Colorado Avalanche forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare during NHL Game No. 260 in Denver on Saturday, Nov. 9, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 17:15 of the second period. Foligno was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct for charging.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and, based on his average annual salary, Foligno will forfeit $88,709.67. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Doesn’t seem like Foligno has ever been a dirty player or a
guy who opportunistically takes advantage of opponents.

And his comments about the hit seemed to show plenty of sincere
concern and remorse.

But the hit looks bad and the results were bad and players have to be
accountable for clipping a guy in the head with their elbow or shoulder, etc.
when they are “lining them up”.

So he had to be suspended. For a guy without a history really, and a team captain, three games is hopefully enough to send that message.
