TORONTO (AP) -New York Islanders forward Chris Simon met with league disciplinarian Colin Campbell on Tuesday to discuss his latest penalty for attempting to injure an opponent.
Simon took a paid leave from the Islanders on Monday, agreeing with the team that he needed time away from hockey after he stomped on Pittsburgh forward Jarkko Ruutu during a 3-2 loss to the Penguins on Saturday.
Simon missed the first five games of this season while completing a 25-game ban - his sixth NHL suspension - handed out in March.
With the Islanders trailing 3-2 late, Simon drew a match penalty when he pulled out Ruutu's leg with his, sending the forward to his knees between the team benches. Simon then stepped on the back of Ruutu's leg with his skate.
Simon was ejected and the Islanders were a man short for all but the final 54 seconds of the game.
