TORONTO (CP) - Ottawa goalie Ray Emery will sit out the Senators' next three games.
The NHL has suspended him for slashing Montreal Canadiens forward Maxim Lapierre on Saturday night.
Emery was assessed a minor penalty on the play, which occurred midway through the second period of Ottawa's 5-3 victory.
He will be eligible to return Feb. 22 at Buffalo.
Emery will forfeit nearly US$15,000 in salary, which goes to the players' emergency assistance fund.
