Tyler Kennedy Suspended for One Game

Tyler Kennedy has been suspended for one game for leaving the players' bench to instigate a fight with Toronto's Luke Schenn.

Schenn had just delivered a big hit on Evgeni Malkin with Kennedy left the bench to engage Schenn in a fight. The Penguins' defense was that the team was on a line change at the time.

The Official NHL Rulebook states:

70.2 Legal Line Change – A player who has entered the game on a legal
line change or legally from the penalty bench (penalty time has
expired) who starts an altercation may be subject to discipline in
accordance with Rule 29 – Supplementary Discipline.

A player or players who have entered the game on a legal line
change during a stoppage of play, who line up in preparation for the
ensuing face-off, and who participate in an altercation shall be
penalized under the appropriate rule and will be subject to discipline in
accordance with Rule 29 – Supplementary Discipline (a game
misconduct is not automatic in this situation unless provided for as a
result of his actions in the altercation).
