Panthers' Selleck suspended

New York, NY (Sports Network) - The National Hockey League issued a one-game suspension to Florida Panthers forward Eric Selleck on Wednesday.

Selleck was hit with the ban after it was judged that he left the bench on a legal line change in order to start a fight with Carolina's Kevin Westgarth late in the third period of Tuesday's 4-1 Panthers victory.

The 25-year-old winger was given a minor for instigation, major for fighting and a game misconduct, and will forfeit $5,945.94 in salary while he sits.
