For the second time in 10 days, the National Hockey League has suspended Craig Berube.
The Calgary Flames forward will miss five games for cross-checking St. Louis Blues forward Doug Weight in the throat during a game last Saturday night. Berube will lose $27,439 (U.S.) in salary.
The incident happened in Berube's first game back after a three-game suspension for his involvement in a melee against Anaheim on Dec. 8.
Berube is now considered a repeat offender under the terms of the collective agreement.
