Witt Suspended Five Games
New York Islanders defenseman Brendan Witt has been suspended for five games, without pay, as a result of an elbowing incident during NHL game #910 against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the National Hockey League announced today.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Witt will forfeit $74,372.75.  The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.  

At 2:21 of the third period, Witt delivered a blow to the head area of Toronto forward Niklas Hagman.  Hagman was injured on the play and did not return to the game.  Officials assessed Witt a major penalty for elbowing and game misconduct on the play.  

Witt will miss Saturday’s game against Buffalo, March 2 against Colorado, March 5 against the New York Rangers, March 7 against New Jersey and March 8 against Phoenix. He will be eligible to return March 10 at Toronto.
