National Hockey League Collective Bargaining Agreement -1993-2004
Article 18 
Commissioner Discipline


     Notwithstanding anything stated in Article 17 (Grievances)
hereof, all disputes involving a fine or suspension imposed upon
a player by the Commissioner (or his designee) for conduct on the
ice, will be processed exclusively as follows:  

     (a) Maximum fining authority will be increased to $1,000,
with the player's club being fined the same amount as the player.

     (b) For the purpose of calculating salary lost due to
suspension, the following formula will apply:

                   1. for first offenders (first incident
requiring supplementary discipline in the form of a game
suspension), player to forfeit one day's salary for each regular  
season game lost (1/total number of days in the season measured
from the date of the League's first regular season game to the
last, irrespective of the player's team's schedule);

         2.for repeat offenders (second or more incidents
requiring game suspension), player to forfeit one game's salary   
for each regular season game lost (1/number of regular season
games for each regular season game suspended);

         3.only salary, signing and reporting bonuses to be
included in calculating the player's annual compensation for      
the 1994/95 season; and

         4.deferred compensation and marketing agreements shall
also be included in calculating the player's annual         
compensation beginning with 1995/96 season.

     (c) Status as a "first" or "repeat" offender shall be
re-determined every eighteen months, on a rolling basis, i.e.,
where a player does not have another suspension for 18 months,
his next suspension will be treated as a "first" offense.

     (d) The League shall not modify or amend the procedures
attached as Exhibit 8 without affording the NHLPA a reasonable
opportunity to consider the proposed changes and consult with
regard thereto.
