Calgary Flames enforcer and locker room character Andre Roy has been suspended for a game by the NHL and fined $2,500 for a pre-game incident he had involving Chicago’s Aaron Johnson.

An incident so heinous that it warrants a bigger penalty than Michael Cammalleri’s forehand shiver to Martin Havlat in Game One.  He bumped into him—in the pre-game skate—and now has to miss Game Five in Chicago.

Judge Campbell, how do you find the defendant?


The NHL has made it known that it will not be tolerating pre-game “activities” and apparently this is something that the league is serious about.

Next time, Andre, don’t waste your energy on the pre-game.
