Jets’ Trouba suspended two games for hit on Senators’ Stone
NEW YORK - The NHL has suspended Winnipeg Jets defenceman Jacob Trouba for two games for an illegal check to the head of Ottawa Senators forward Mark Stone.
The incident occurred at 6:42 of the third period of Winnipeg’s 3-2 win in Ottawa on Sunday.
Stone had just made a pass in the Winnipeg zone when Trouba hit him with an open-ice elbow to the head. Stone did not return to the game, but has joined the Senators for their upcoming road trip. Trouba was assessed a minor penalty for illegal check to the head on the play. A first-time offender, Trouba will forfeit $33,333.34 in salary.
