Cote gets 3 games
The league handed Flyers forward Riley Cote a three-game suspension on Monday for his match penalty following a high head shot to Stars defenceman Matt Niskanen Saturday night. Any player assessed a match penalty is automatically suspended pending a review by the league.
Media outlets in Philadelphia today reported that commissioner Gary Bettman had warned Flyers' general manager Paul Holmgren about further incidents.
"I talked to (Bettman) today," Holmgren told the Philadelphia Daily News. "He thinks, like I do, that these are different coincidences, different situations, that have to be viewed differently, but the question was raised about ramifications if it happens again.
"So obviously we're under watch."
