The NHL has suspended San Jose Sharks left wing John Scott two games for leaving the bench with the purpose of instigating a fight, the league announced Monday.

During the third period of Sunday night's victory over the Anaheim Ducks, Scott skated onto the ice, directly toward Ducks right wing Tim Jackman. Scott took Jackman down to the ice, sparking a brawl between many players. Scott made no attempt to play the puck, the league determined.

Toronto Maple Leafs forward David Clarkson was suspended for 10 games last season for a similar incident. 

Scott, 32, is in his first season with the Sharks and has one goal in five games.

San Jose has opened the season 5-4-1 and plays the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday.
