Kovalchuk
NEW YORK -- Atlanta Thrashers left wing Ilya Kovalchuk has been suspended for one game, without pay, for a hit from behind on New York Rangers defenseman Michal Rozsival in NHL game #727 on Jan. 22, the National Hockey League announced today.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Kovalchuk will forfeit $34,224.60. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

The incident took place at 19:24 of the first period and Kovalchuk was assessed a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.

Kovalchuk will miss Thursday’s game at New York Rangers.

the only reason they suspended him is to protect him, they don't want one of their superstars to get mauled.

it's sad how their star players get special treatment.

I don't think the hit warranted a suspension the 5 minute major/misconduct was enough, I think it was more along the lines of the NHL not wanting to take the risk of retaliation coming in the very next game due to the quirk in the schedule.
