The National Hockey League's department of player safety made the announcement in a press release. He was offered an in-person hearing on Friday by the league and has already served two games of the suspension awaiting his fate.
Kaleta's infraction occurred at 3:10 of the first period of the Blue Jackets' 4-1 win. Kaleta, a six-foot-one, 198-pound winger, was not penalized on the play but later got a five-minute fighting major for duking it out with Jared Boll, who came to his teammate's aid.
Johnson would stay in the game.
Kaleta will forfeit $152,439.00 in salary as per terms of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. All of that money will go the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.Suggest a correction
