Watch a video clip of the incident and hear Brendan Shanahan's explanation for the punishment.
Phoenix Coyotes forward Shane Doan has been suspended for three games and will forfeit 166,463.40 for elbowing Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn during Tuesday night's game in Dallas.
Doan, who received a three-game suspension in October 2010, is classified as a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Accordingly, he forfeits his salary based on the number of games in the season. The money goes to the Players Emergency Assistance Fund.
The incident occurred at 5:54 of the second period. Doan was assessed a minor penalty for elbowing on the play.
