Sharks-Ducks brawl fallout: San Jose's Scott suspended two games
San Jose Sharks forward John Scott has been suspended two games for his role in a fight with Anaheim's Tim Jackman.
The NHL announced the suspension on Monday.
The altercation came late in the third period Sunday night in San Jose's 4-1 win over the Ducks. Scott came off the bench on a legal line change and immediately engaged Jackman in a fight. Scott made no effort to play the puck after coming on the ice and league rules say a player can be disciplined if his purpose for coming onto the ice is to start a fight.
Scott is a repeat offender having been previously suspended for an illegal hit to the head. Scott will miss games at Colorado and Minnesota this week.
Also on Monday, the Ducks announced that defenseman Ben Lovejoy suffered a broken finger during the ensuing brawl on Sunday night and will miss six to eight weeks.
