TORONTO - Coyotes defenceman Ed Jovanovski was suspended one game on Friday for a blow to the head of Wild forward Marian Gaborik during a 3-1 loss in Minnesota.

Jovanovski was given a minor penalty for roughing at 19:43 of the third period Wednesday night. Gaborik had scored on a breakaway in the second period to make it 2-0.

Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Jovanovski will forfeit US$34,759.36 to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund. He will miss Friday night's game at Chicago and be eligible to return Dec. 1 at Detroit.

Jovanovski has two goals and 13 assists this season.
