Worrell suspended three games
Wed. Nov. 18, 1998.

NEW YORK - Florida Panthers rookie left wing Peter Worrell was suspended three games without pay by the NHL on Wednesday for delivering a jaw-breaking elbow to Pittsburgh's Aleksey Morozov on Saturday. Worrell also was levied the maximum $1,000 fine by the league after taking a major penalty for elbowing and a game misconduct at 7:12 of the third period in Florida's 4-0 loss. Morozov also received a concussion as a result of the hit and sat out the Penguins' 4-1 loss to Philadelphia on Tuesday. "Worrell delivered an elbow-forearm to the head of his opponent, who suffered a concussion as a result," said NHL director of hockey operations Colin Campbell, who has handed out 14 suspensions in just over five weeks.
