Stevenson suspended for two games
NEW YORK - Montreal Canadiens right wing Turner Stevenson was suspended for two games and fined $1,000 by the NHL on Monday, Oct. 12, 1998, for throwing an elbow to the face of Buffalo forward Dixon Ward two days earlier. The incident happened late in the second period and no penalty was assessed on the play. ''Mr. Stevenson directed a deliberate elbow to the face,'' NHL senior vice president Colin Campbell said. ''This suspension is consistent with the league's mandate to discipline players for deliberate acts directed to the head of an opponent.'' Stevenson will miss Monday night's game against Chicago and Wednesday night's against Ottawa, both at home.
