Report: Simon suspended 22 games
FOXSports.com

Chris Simon, the New York Islanders' tough guy who slashed the Rangers' Ryan Hollweg in the face Thursday night, has suspended by the NHL for the remainder of the regular season and seven playoff games, TSN reported on its web site Saturday.

Since the Islanders have 15 regular season games left, the suspension could be for as long as 22 games.
This is the sixth time Simon has been suspended by the league.

Simon's suspension is the second-longest in NHL history for an on-ice incident. Marty McSorley was banned for 23 games for hitting Donald Brashear in the head with his stick in 2000.

Simon suspended for regular season and playoffs
Sun, Mar 11, 2007
By Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Chris Simon of the New York Islanders was suspended Sunday for the rest of the regular season and playoffs for his two-handed stick attack to the face of New York Rangers forward Ryan Hollweg.

Simon will miss at least 25 games - the Islanders' final 15 regular-season games and the entire postseason. If the Islanders play fewer than 10 playoff games this year, the suspension will continue next season. The Islanders currently are contending for a playoff spot.

NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell announced the punishment one day after holding a hearing at the league office in New York. Simon was banned indefinitely Friday, following his vicious hit in retaliation for a hard check by Hollweg on Thursday night.

''The National Hockey League will not accept the use of a stick in the manner and fashion in which Mr. Simon used his Thursday night,'' Campbell said in a statement. ''As a consequence of his actions, Mr. Simon has forfeited the privilege of playing in an NHL game again this season, regardless of how many games the Islanders ultimately play.''

Based on the one-year, $1 million contract Simon signed with the Islanders before this season, he will lose at least $80,200.
