Fox appeal decision announced

The Elite League Department of Player Safety has released the result of the appeal lodged by the Fife Flyers following the suspension of their player, Justin Fox.

Head coach Todd Dutiaume travelled to Sheffield for Tuesday evening's appeal, in order to put across the club's appeal with supporting evidence.

The Department of Player Safety’s Appeals Panel upheld the original Match penalty for High-Sticking assessed on Fox during the game between Dundee Stars and Fife Flyers on Sunday 19th February 2017.

This penalty carried an automatic one game ban, which could not be appealed. Fox served this ban on Saturday 25th February when Fife Flyers played Belfast Giants.

Fox was also assessed an additional four game ban following a review of the incident by the Department of Player Safety.

Fife appealed this decision, and upon review the Appeals Panel has reduced the supplementary discipline Fox received from four games to one.

Fox will miss the following game:
