New York, NY (Sports Network) - Phoenix Coyotes forward Paul Bissonnette has been suspended without pay for 10 regular-season games as a result of being assessed a game misconduct penalty for leaving the bench on an illegal line change to join an altercation during a preseason game.

Bissonnette was assessed a game misconduct at the 12:09 mark in the first period Sunday night against the Kings when he came off the bench to fight Jordan Nolan.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and based on his average annual salary, Bissonnette will forfeit $37,820.51. The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Bissonnette will be eligible to return to the Coyotes' lineup on Oct. 24 at Los Angeles.
