So when people are saying 2+10, that doesn't mean he is ejected, just has to sit in the penalty box for that entire time. They are only down a man for the 2 minutes though(Additional player serves the 2 minutes and comes out then).
You are correct, but what I meant by 2+10 or 5+10 was a 2 minute minor + a game misconduct + automatic 1 game suspension, or 5 minute major + game misconduct + automatic 2 game suspension.
