RUUTU SUSPENDED TWO GAMES
Ottawa Senators forward Jarkko Ruutu has been suspended for two games, without pay, for an incident in NHL game #586 against the Buffalo Sabres, the National Hockey League announced today.

Ruutu, who was suspended for two games in November, now is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.  Accordingly, he forfeits $31,707.32 in salary based on the number of games in the season (82), rather than the number of days (186).  The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Ruutu was involved in an altercation with Sabres’ Andrew Peters at 13:13 of the first period.  No penalty was assessed on the play.

Ruutu will miss Thursday’s game at Boston and Jan. 10 against the Rangers.  He will be eligible to return Jan. 13 against the Carolina Hurricanes.
