The verdict is in. Washington Capitals’ defenseman John Erskine has been suspended three games.

And he has been forced to cough up just under twenty five thousand dollars for elbowing Flyers’ Winger Wayne Simmonds in the head last Friday night.

The flying elbow, which drew blood from Simmonds, resulted in Erskine’s first suspension in the veteran’s 11-year career.
