Scott was handed his punishment for punching an unsuspecting opponent and causing an injury to Ducks forward Tim Jackman. The incident took place at 8:18 of the second period. Scott did not receive a penalty on the play.
The 32-year-old Edmonton native is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and, based on his average annual salary, will forfeit US$34,146.36. The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
Scott has one goal and one assist and 24 penalty minutes in 15 games this season with the Sharks.
