The Central Hockey League announced Monday a two-game suspension for Rapid City Rush forward Anthony Perdicaro as a consequence for leaving the players’ bench to instigate a fight with an opponent (rule 70.2) in the Rush’s game on Saturday against Dayton.

Perdicaro was assessed four penalties for the infraction including a two-minute instigator minor, a five-minute fighting major, a 10-minute misconduct for instigating and a 10-minute game misconduct for leaving the players’ bench.

The incident, occurring at the 12:59 mark of the first period, also involved Dayton’s Robin Richards, who was assessed a five-minute major for fighting.

As a result, Perdicaro will miss Rapid City’s next two games, Friday at Dayton and Saturday at Bloomington.

The Rush won the game 6-0 after being shutout the previous night.

In addition, the CHL announced that Wichita forward R.G. Flath has been suspended for two games because of an illegal check to the head during Wichita’s game with the Texas Brahmas on Saturday

Flath missed the Thunder’s game with Texas on Saturday and will also miss a Wednesday game against the Arizona Sundogs to complete his suspension.

Flath played for the Rapid City Rush during the team’s inaugural season in 2008-2009.
