American Hockey League President and CEO David Andrews today announced the following suspensions after a league review of AHL Game #348 between the Lowell Lock Monsters and Norfolk Admirals, played Saturday night, Dec. 11, in Norfolk, Va.:

The AHL has suspended Lowell head coach Tom Rowe and Norfolk head coach Trent Yawney for ten (10) regular-season games each for their actions on Saturday. Both coaches had been assessed gross misconducts at the 20:00 mark of the first period.

Lowell left wing Brantt Myhres has been suspended a total of eight (8) games for leaving the players' bench and initiating an altercation. Lowell defenseman Allan Rourke, who received a match penalty for head-butting, has been suspended for three (3) games. Norfolk left wing Mike Brown and defenseman Jim Vandermeer have been suspended for two (2) games apiece for their roles in the incident.

Additionally, both coaches, a total of nine players and both organizations have been fined undisclosed amounts.

Rowe, who served the first game of his suspension on Sunday, will be eligible to return to the Lowell bench on Jan. 9 vs. Providence. Myhres will begin his suspension on Dec. 17 at Worcester, and will be eligible to return to the lineup on Jan. 7 at Manchester. Rourke served his first game on Sunday, and will miss the Lock Monsters’ next two games (Dec. 17 at Worcester, Dec. 18 vs. Worcester).

Yawney will be eligible to return to the Norfolk bench on Jan. 8 vs. Bridgeport. Brown and Vandermeer will each miss the Admirals’ next two games (Dec. 15 vs. Manchester, Dec. 16 at Houston) and will be eligible to return on Dec. 18 at Houston.



What's the deal with coach suspensions? I know they're not allowed on the bench, but are they allowed in the lockerrooms and such?

I don't know about AHL rules, but I'll make an assumption they are like NHL rules - and NHL rules are that the coach is not allowed inside the building at game time. I remember Darryl Sutter was suspended for three games last year after an incident between Calgary and Nashville where he may have sent a few players out to specifically beat up on a few Preds players. They were commenting during games (as I had NHL Center Ice and got to watch them) that Sutter could not be in the building for games - he was probably watching them at home or in his hotel room.

But if anyone hears for certain, I'd love to know.

Also curious who will join Coach Scott Allen on the bench. I know Jim Playfair (Asst. Coach from Calgary) was filling in last night. I'm wondering if we'll have a rotation of Calgary and Carolina coaching staff for the next 10 games (oooh ... Coach Laviolette for one and Coach Sutter for another? Please! That would be wicked cool!)
