FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wednesday, March 21, 2012

NEW YORK -- Phoenix Coyotes forward Shane Doan has been suspended for three games and will forfeit $166,463.40 for elbowing Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn during NHL Game #1094 in Dallas on Tuesday, March 20, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

Doan, who received a three-game suspension in October 2010, 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 5:54 of the second period. Doan was assessed a minor penalty for elbowing on the play.
