Morency suspended for five regular season games
Islanders forward Pascal Morency was suspended for the remainder of the preseason and the first five games of the regular season, the NHL announced today.
Morency left the bench to start a fight in an exhibition game against Calgary after Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf leveled Islanders forward Kyle Okposo.
Morency hasn't played the past two preseason games and will miss the remaining three before the regular season begins.
