With three more suspensions -- Colorado's Kevin Porter, Buffalo's Ville Leino and Edmonton's Andy Sutton -- announced on Thursday, there have been 30 on-ice incidents leading to either a suspension or fine since the start of preseason.

As a result, $1,042,970.88 has been lost in pay and 65 regular-season games have been missed, not including Sutton who was suspended indefinitely while waiting for a hearing with the league.

The money players are fined goes to the Players' emergency Assistance Fund.

Brendan Shanahan took over as the NHL's chief disciplinarian from Colin Campbell at the end of last season.

During the 2010-11 season, there were a total of 53 suspensions or fines to players.
