ECHL announces fine, suspension
The ECHL on Saturday announced that Utah’s Garrett Klotz has been suspended indefinitely and fined an undisclosed amount as a result of his actions in ECHL Game #237, Florida at Utah, on Nov. 29.
Klotz was assessed a match penalty for fighting under Rule #46.15 at 12:58 of the second period. He is fined and suspended under Rule #28 – Supplementary Discipline.
Klotz will miss Utah’s game vs. Florida tonight (Nov. 30) and further discipline will be announced following a hearing with the ECHL Hockey Operations Department next week.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the ECHL and the Professional Hockey Players’ Association, player fines collected by the ECHL are given to the PHPA for its ECHL Player’s Hardship Fund.
