Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Paul Bissonnette was banned for 10 games by the NHL for leaving the bench during a preseason game fight.

Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Paul Bissonnette was suspended for 10 games without pay by the NHL

Bissonette "was assessed a game misconduct penalty for leaving the bench on an illegal line change to join an altercation during NHL Preseason Game No. 9 against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday night in Glendale, Az.," per the NHL's official website

He wanted to take on Los Angeles Kings center Jordan Nolan after he hit his teammate Rostislav Klesla, who was taken off the ice on a stretcher. He was diagnosed with a concussion but was released from the hospital after a few hours.

Coyotes coach Dave Tippett confirmed it was a line change even before the suspension. 

"It was a (line) change. Bis was next going. I don't know if he jumped early or what the situation was. It wasn't much of an altercation." 

Bissonnette will be docked $37,820.51 in pay based on his annual salary and the terms of the NHL's Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). The amount will go to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund. 

As for Nolan, he was not suspended by the league as his hard hit was deemed a clean one by chief player disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan. 

Bissonnette will take the ice once again on October 24 in the Coyotes' road game against the Kings.
