Hordichuk suspended. Vigneault fined.


This is from  NHL.com

Vancouver Canucks forward Darcy Hordichuk was automatically suspended for one game, and Canucks coach Alain Vigneault fined $10,000 by the NHL for violation of the instigator rule.

Hordichuk was assessed an instigator penalty with 4:56 left in the third period of Tuesdays' game against the St. Louis Blues. NHL rules state any player given an instigator penalty in the final five minutes of a game or at any point in overtime is automatically suspended one game, and his coach automatically fined $10,000.

Hordichuk will miss Thursday's game at Detroit; he can return for Saturday's game at Colorado.

Hordichuk will lose $4,015.54, with that money going to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund. Vigneault's fine goes to the NHL Foundation.

 

Break out the Nelson laugh - and way to go, Cam Janssen.  Skating away from Hordichuk and making Hordichuk draw the instigator penalty.  Nice one, Cam!
