    Default Gillies gets 10 more games

    http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=555042

    New York Islanders forward Trevor Gillies has been suspended for 10 games for delivering a blow to the head of Cal Clutterbuck of the Minnesota Wild in Tuesday's game at Nassau Coliseum.

    Gillies will forfeit $60,975.60 in salary.

    The incident occurred at 2:23 of the second period and Gillies was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct for checking from behind.

    "By targeting his opponent's head, three shifts into his first game back from a suspension for a very similar action, Mr. Gillies has forfeited his privilege of playing in the League for 10 games," said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell. "While it is fortunate there was no injury on the play, there can be no justification for a player delivering a dangerous check to an opponent in this manner."

    Gillies, who was suspended for 9 games on Feb. 11 for his actions in a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and forfeits his salary based on the number of games in the season (82), rather than the number of days (186).

    The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

    Gillies will miss the Islanders' next 10 games and be eligible to return March 26 against Philadelphia.

    Pretty much a joke. No fine and pretty much the exact same punishment he received and this is a 2nd offense.

    Pathetic.

    We have one league run by a tyrant who wants to fine and suspend guys at will, then you have the NHL who bull****s us about protecting players and does little about it! We can't seem to get a happy medium in either sport can we?

    i am not all that upset about it, he pretty much will have missed the rest of the season since the pens game, and i seriously doubt he will play another NHL game for the rest of his life. so i mean the punishment is pretty severe in the long run.

    no team is going to take a chance on a meat head, the minute he is released from the lslanders hes done. He has zero skill sets, hes a bruiser, and not a very smart one at that.

    Unless the NHL has secret plans to ban fighting, he will play again.
