New York Islanders defenceman Travis Hamonic has been suspended for one game for instigating a fight during the final five minutes of Saturday's game against the New Jersey Devils.
Islanders coach Jack Capuano was also fined $10,000 for his role in the incident. The National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced the penalties on Saturday.
Hamonic was given a minor penalty for instigating, a major penalty for fighting and a game misconduct on the play, which occurred at the 15:23 mark of the third period. Hamonic was attempting to fight Devils forward Ryan Carter, who did not respond to Hamonic's actions.
In 49 games this season, Hamonic has one goal and nine assists. He had no previous NHL suspension history.
