San Jose Sharks forward Ryane Clowe was suspended two games by the National Hockey League Monday for an incident that occurred during Friday’s 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

At the end of Friday’s game, Clowe was assessed a minor for roughing and a game misconduct for leaving the players’ bench to start an altercation.

According to an NHL press release, Clowe was given two games for leaving the bench on a legal line change and starting an altercation with Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw.

Clowe was suspended indefinitely Saturday pending the outcome of Monday’s supplementary discipline hearing. The 30-year-old waived his right to an in-person hearing and the infraction was instead discussed over the phone.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Clowe will forfeit $39,189.18. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Clowe missed San Jose’s game Saturday against the Dallas Stars; he will also miss Tuesday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche. He will be eligible to return Feb. 28 versus the Detroit Red Wings.
