Senators' Mark Stone Gets Two Games

Senators' forward Mark Stone, who is leading the NHL in even strength points per 60 minutes (min: 80 minutes played), will not be getting any minutes for the next two games. Stone picked up his first NHL suspension from the Department of Player Safety on Monday, earning two games on the sidelines for this check to the head of Red Wings' center Landon Ferraro (see video of the hit above).

According to the NHL, Tthe onus is on him to deliver that hit in a legal manner... he delivers a reckless shoulder to the head of an opponent, making the head the main point of contact."

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and, based on his average annual salary, Stone will forfeit $37,634.40.
