The ECHL on Friday announced that Atlanta’s Tyler Murovich has been suspended indefinitely and fined an undisclosed amount as a result of his actions in ECHL Game #210, Norfolk at Atlanta, on Nov. 24.


Murovich was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct for boarding under Rule #41.5 at 9:03 of the third period. He is fined and suspended under Rule #28 – Supplementary Discipline.


Murovich will miss Atlanta’s games against Norfolk tonight (Nov. 25) and South Carolina on Nov. 27 and any further discipline will be announced following a hearing on Monday with the ECHL Hockey Operations Department.
