Ducks F Jacques suspended

Anaheim Ducks forward Jean-Francois Jacques season games.

Jacques received the ban for leaving the bench during a legal line change to engage in a fight with Vancouver Canucks forward Mike Duco during a preseason game last Saturday.

He was assessed a minor for instigation, a major for fighting, a 10-minute misconduct as well as an automatic one-game ban for starting a fight inside the final five minutes of a game.

The 26-year-old forfeits $17,567.55 in salary which goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund. He will not be eligible to return until October 21, when the Ducks face the Dallas Stars.
