Chabot suspended two games
According to RDS, Chabot has received a two-game suspension for his checking to the head infraction that took place in the third period of Friday's Sea Dogs game in Sydney. The play, which involved Cape Breton's Yannik Bertrand, resulted in a five-minute major and game misconduct for Chabot at 11:14 of the third.
The hit ended up being a game changing play. The Eagles, down 2-0 at the time, scored on the ensuing power play, scored on another power play with their goaltender pulled at 18:01, and then won the game in overtime.
It's the second time this month the Sea Dogs defenceman has been suspended. On Feb. 8, Chabot was suspended two games for a "dangerous slew-foot."
Chabot will miss Saint John's Sunday and Wednesday home games against the Halifax Mooseheads. The Ottawa Senators prospect has eight goals and 30 assists in 28 games this season.
