Royals' Fawcett and Admirals' Krebs scrap it out

The ECHL announced on April 14 fines and suspensions for the following players: Kansas City Mavericks’ Max Andreev, Atlanta Gladiators’ Michael Marchesan, and Reading Royals’ Tyson Fawcett.

Mavericks’ Max Andreev has been fined an undisclosed amount and handed a five-game suspension under Rule #70.10: Leaving the Bench as a result of his actions on April 13. Andreev was assessed a minor for instigating, five minutes for fighting, a game misconduct for instigating in the final five minutes, and a game misconduct for leaving the player’s bench, all at 19:19 of the third period. A puck would be dumped into the Kansas City zone, and while chasing the loose puck, Iowa Heartlanders player Nico Blackman would skate through the Kansas City netminder, Jack LaFontaine, knocking his helmet off. Andreev would step off the bench and, make a B-line to Blackman and drop the gloves to take exception to the hit. Andreev will miss the first five games of Kansas City’s Kelly Cup Playoff games. If Kansas City does not play five games, Andreev will serve the remainder of his suspension to start next season.

Gladiators Michael Marchesan was fined an undisclosed amount and a two-game suspension under Rule #28: Supplementary Discipline. With Atlanta having one game remaining on its season on April 14, Marchesan will be serving the final of his two-game suspension to start the 2024-25 season. In game 944 for the ECHL, Marchesan would retaliate to a hit given by a Jacksonville Icemen player. Without hesitation, Marchesan would drop his gloves and land a couple of punches to unsuspecting Icemen player Riley Fiddler-Schultz. Marchesan would be given a minor for roughing, a five-minute major for fighting, and a game misconduct for aggressor at 15:17 of the third period.

Reading Royals

Readings’ Tyson Fawcett has been fined an undisclosed amount under Rule #28: Supplementary Discipline for spearing at 19:12 of the third period. Fawcett was assessed a major and a game misconduct for spearing. Fawcett would have words with Orlando Solar Bears goaltender Evan Fitzpatrick after Reading iced the puck at 18:50 of the third period. Off the faceoff, Reading would control the puck and bring it into the zone. Off a turnover and the puck behind Orlandos’ net, Fawcett would skate past the net and spear Fitzpatrick below the belt.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the ECHL and the Professional Hockey Players’ Association, player fines collected by the ECHL are given to the PHPA for its ECHL Player’s Hardship Fund.
