Numerous reports of Jody Shelley getting suspended for two games for his sucker punch on Alberts last night.
TORONTO (December 29, 2010) – Philadelphia Flyers forward Jody Shelley has been suspended for two games and will forfeit $26,829.27 in salary for a punch to the head of Vancouver Canucks defenseman Andrew Alberts during a scrum in NHL game #544, on December 28, the National Hockey League announced today.
Shelley, who was suspended for two games on December 13, 2010, 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.
With about 7 minutes left in the game in which Vancouver had a 6-1 lead, Shelley decides to throw a punch or two when not expected.
