Will Shane Doan face discipline for elbowing Jamie Benn in the face?

The Phoenix Coyotes are still fighting for a playoff spot, as well as a possible division title, so the last thing they need right now is a possible suspension for one of their best players, forward Shane Doan.

He might be facing one for an elbow he delivered to the face of Stars forward Jamie Benn early in the second period of their game in Dallas on Tuesday night.

Have a look...



Doan was issued a two-minute minor for elbowing, but it remains to be seen whether or not the NHL will hand out any additional discipline.

At this point, it seems to be complete guesswork as to what is and isn't worthy of a suspension (we've said that many times in years past) and with the Coyotes fighting for a playoff spot it should be interesting to see what -- if anything -- the NHL has to say.
