Sharks’ John Scott suspended two games

SAN JOSE — Sharks forward John Scott has been suspended two games for his role in a fight with Anaheim’s Tim Jackman.

The NHL announced the suspension Monday.

The altercation came late in the third period Sunday night in the Sharks’ 4-1 win over the Ducks. Scott came off the bench on a legal line change and immediately engaged Jackman in a fight. Scott made no effort to play the puck after coming on the ice and league rules say a player can be disciplined if his purpose for coming onto the ice is to start a fight.

Scott is a repeat offender having been previously suspended for an illegal hit to the head.

Scott will miss games at Colorado and Minnesota this week.
