The National Lacrosse League late Thursday night announced several disciplinary actions results from games last weekend. The biggest penalty handed down was to Buffalo Bandits transition man Jon Harasym, who was suspended for 2 games and fined an undisclosed amount for an incident last Saturday against Minnesota. Harasym was penalized twice in that game, both in the first quarter. There was 2-minute roughing minor at 10:10, followed by a 5-minute illegal cross-checking major toward the end of the quarter. This means Harasym will not be available for Saturday’s game at Rochester, unless he appeals.

Further, Bandits transition man Mark Steenhuis was issued a game-misconduct and a fine for his role in an incident against Philadelphia last Friday.

Also suspended was Colorado defenseman Chet Koneczny, for 1 game, and Washington Stealth defenseman Tim Henderson, for 1 game, for incidents in their game Saturday in Colorado.

Toronto coach Troy Cordingley was issued a game-misconduct penalty for his actions in Sunday’s game against Edmonton, a game in which he was ejected.

The NLL also rescinded game-misconduct penalties that were issued to Stealth defenseman Mike Grimes and forward Sean Pollock during their game Saturday in Colorado.
