Sharks forward John Scott suspended 4 games

NEW YORK — San Jose Sharks forward John Scott has been suspended for four games without pay for punching Ducks forward Tim Jackman.

Scott was also banned two games in October for coming onto the ice to fight Jackman. Scott was already considered a repeat offender after he was previously suspended for an illegal hit to the head.

The league said Wednesday he will forfeit $34,146 in salary this time.

Scott struck an unsuspecting Jackman in the face after a play in the second period of the Ducks' 3-2 overtime win Monday, sending him crumpling to the ice. He did not receive a penalty.

Scott has one goal, one assist and 24 penalty minutes in 15 games this season. He will miss a rematch against the Ducks next Wednesday before becoming eligible to return Jan. 5.
