Rangers forward Byers suspended one game, coach Tortorella fined $10,000

TORONTO - New York Rangers forward Dane Byers was handed a one-game suspension by the NHL on Wednesday while coach John Tortorella was fined US$10,000.

The pair were punished after Byers received an instigator penalty at 18:50 of the third period of Monday's game in Vancouver.

The disciplinary action was automatic because Byers received his instigator penalty in the final five minutes of a game, violating rule 47.22.

The 23-year-old will sit out Thursday's game in Edmonton and will forfeit US$2,590.67 in salary. He's eligible to return to the lineup in Calgary on Saturday.
