Versteeg Suspended

A last second decision to fight Kyle Turris has cost Kris Versteeg one game and Blackhawks coach Joel Quennville $10,000 after Versteeg was assessed an instigator penalty for the fight in the last five minutes of the game. With one second left on the clock and the play dead, Versteeg dropped the mitts with Turris and roughed him up pretty good, giving the young centre a bloody nose in the process.

Versteeg was picked up in the Waiver Draft by Chris and in the first week of activity, Versteeg picked up 2 assists in 3 games. For the whole season, the rookie has picked up 22 points in 25 games, but will have to wait until Friday before he can resume his rookie campaign.
