Carcillo Suspended / Side Notes

Daniel Carcillo, as every one expected has been suspended by the NHL, Here’s a quote I got from nhl.com.

NEW YORK – Chicago Blackhawks forward Daniel Carcillo has been suspended for seven games and will forfeit $66,158.54 in salary for boarding Edmonton Oilers defenseman Tom Gilbert during NHL Game #571 in Chicago on Monday, Jan. 2, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

Carcillo, who was suspended on Nov. 28, 2011, is classified as 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 (185). The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

The incident occurred at 7:23 of the second period. A major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct were assessed on the play.

Carcillo will miss games Jan. 5 at Philadelphia, Jan. 6 vs. Colorado, Jan. 8 vs. Detroit, Jan. 10 vs. Columbus, Jan. 12 vs. Minnesota, Jan. 14 at Detroit and Jan. 15 vs. San Jose. He will be eligible to return Jan. 18 vs. Buffalo.

Note that Carcillo is undergoing tests on his knee and would not start serving the suspension until he is considered healthy.

Here’s a couple of other things that are worth mentioning:

Steve Montador did not practice on Tuesday but Quenneville said he’s getting better and hopes the defenseman is back on the ice soon.

Talking about Hawks center Marcus Kruger. Coach Q said that he was “not so good today.” The young center had been progressing, although he had yet to skate again after getting re-injured on Dec. 26 against Columbus.

The Hawks will likely continue to play the “call up” game from Rockford. The beauty of having a nearby AHL team makes being able to call guys up a hechuva lot easier.
