Doan Reacts to NHL Suspension
GLENDALE -- The NHL on Wednesday suspended Coyotes captain Shane Doan for three games for a hit on Stars forward Jamie Benn during Tuesday's game in Dallas. After the suspension was announced, Doan issued the following statement:

“I accept the NHL’s decision and ruling. I am thankful that Jamie Benn was not hurt on the play. I recognize how bad it looked but there was no intent to injure him. Jamie Benn is a class act and I appreciate how he handled everything. I apologize to the NHL, my teammates and our fans for missing the next three games as we continue to fight for a playoff spot.”

The Coyotes' next three opponents are Colorado on Thursday, at San Jose on Saturday and St. Louis on Sunday. is the official Web site of the Arizona Coyotes.
