The decision was announced Wednesday afternoon following a phone hearing with Scott. The incident occurred in a Monday night game between the Sharks and the Ducks.
Scott's suspension was handed down due to the injury his punch caused, and the fact that Jackman was not expecting it. According to the video explanation, driving to the net and getting into shoving matches after the whistle is common, but Scott's reaction to Jackman's initial shove was deemed unacceptable.
His history as a repeat offender was also a factor in the decision.Suggest a correction
