Flames' Tkachuk suspended 1 game for spearing

An icon and a hero exchanging life

Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk has been suspended one game by the National Hockey League for a spearing incident in Wednesday's game against Toronto.

Tkachuk is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and, based on his average annual salary, will forfeit $11,280.49.

Frederik Andersen made a season-high 47 saves, and the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Calgary Flames 2-1 in a shootout at Air Canada Centre on Wednesday. Tkachuk, a Flames forward standing at the bench, reached over the boards and into the pile of bodies and thrusted his stick at Martin. He didn't speak to reporters after the game.

Trump May Urge Maine Gov. LePage to Run for Senate
The Post story cited two anonymous sources with knowledge of the discussions in the White House. He declined to comment on LePage specifically, saying the conversations are private.

Morgan Rielly scored for the Maple Leafs (18-10-1), who won for the 10th time in their past 14 games. "No reason for that stuff".

Tkachuk faced a disciplinary hearing on Thursday where he was handed the suspension for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Tkachuk, who wasn't penalized on the play, was suspended on November 17 for a similar incident. I think he's an effective player. "When you're sitting on the bench or the situation in Detroit ... it's not really necessary ..." That was the second suspension of his young career, as he earned a two-game ban last March for elbowing Drew Doughty in the head.
