Flyers' Shelley suspended 10 games
NEW YORK (AP)
Watch Jody Shelley's hit and ensuing fight from Wednesday night here.
Brendan Shanahan was busy Thursday in his first season as the NHL's dean of discipline. He also banned Calgary forward Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond for the rest of the preseason and the Flames' first game of the regular season.
Shelley received a five-minute boarding penalty for hitting Boyce when Boyce was facing the end boards. Immediately after the hit, Toronto's Jay Rosehill and Shelley engaged in a lengthy fight. Shelley left the ice with the right side of his face bloodied. Both players received fighting majors, and Shelley was also given a game misconduct.
Shelley can return Oct. 20 vs. Washington. He was suspended twice last season.
