Suspensions do not include players suspended for off-ice violations, including violations of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program. Fines do not include team fines (e.g. Kings’ fine for allowing Voynov to practice, Flyers’ fine for traveling on a restricted day).
A repeat offender is one who has been suspended for a second offense within 18 months of the previous offense. Repeat offender status applies only to the way fines and salary forfeiture is calculated. All disciplinary history is considered when determining a player’s suspension.
Repeat offenders’ fines are calculated based on the number of games in a season (salary/82)*suspension length. Others are calculated based on the days in a season: (salary/195)*suspension length.
Fines: None if less than $5,000. Phone hearing if over $5,000.
Suspensions: Phone if up to five games. In person if six games or more. If a player waives his right to an in-person hearing, he may still receive a suspension of six games or more via phone hearing.
Fines and Salary Forfeitures
Fines can be up to 50% of a player’s daily salary (salary/195). Fines may not exceed $10,000 for a first offense and $15,000 for a second offense within a 12-month period.
