ECHL Announces Fine, Suspension

March 25, 2016 - ECHL (ECHL) News Release

PRINCETON, N.J. - The ECHL on Friday announced that Missouri's C.J. Ludwig has been suspended for six games and fined an undisclosed amount as a result of his actions in ECHL Game #896, Evansville at Missouri, on March 23.

Ludwig was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct for elbowing under Rule #45.5 at 9:41 of the second period. He is fined and suspended under Rule #28 - Supplementary Discipline.

The ECHL Player Safety Department released the following statement in regards to the suspension:

"Mr. Ludwig's suspension is based on the elbowing major from Wednesday's game, as well as his repeat offender status as he has been suspended multiple times this season. Mr. Ludwig had just returned to the line-up one game prior from a four-game suspension for clipping, and had also received a one-game suspension for elbowing earlier this season."

Ludwig will miss Missouri's games at Allen (March 26 and March 27), vs. Quad City (March 30), vs. Allen (April 1 and April 2) and vs. Tulsa (April 5).

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.
