March, 21, 2012
The Phoenix Coyotes released a statement tonight from Shane Doan on his three-game suspension for elbowing Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn in Tuesday's game at American Airlines Center.
“I accept the NHL’s decision and ruling" Doan said. "I am thankful that Jamie Benn was not hurt on the play. I recognize how bad it looked but there was no intent to injure him. Jamie Benn is a class act and I appreciate how he handled everything. I apologize to the NHL, my teammates and our fans for missing the next three games as we continue to fight for a playoff spot.”
