The National Lacrosse League has issued a summary of discipline stemming from incidents occurring during Week 16 of the 2014 NLL regular season for games played on Friday, April 11 and Saturday, April 12.

Rochester Knighthawks forward Craig Point has been assessed a one-game suspension stemming from a illegal cross-checking incident on Vancouver Stealth defenseman Kyle Sorensen at approximately the 12:50 mark of the fourth quarter of their game on April 12. A boarding major penalty was called on the field, and upon league review of the incident, Point has been assessed a match penalty for Illegal Cross Checking (Rule 63.3), which carries an automatic one-game suspension (Rule 41.2).

In other league discipline news, the one-game suspensions assessed to the Buffalo Bandits' Andrew Watt and Vancouver Stealth's Tyler Garrison have been appealed and are headed to arbitration with both players eligible to play this weekend.

Watt was assessed a one-game suspension stemming from an elbowing incident on Calgary Roughnecks defenseman Dan MacRae at approximately the 1:53 mark of the fourth quarter of their game on April 5. No penalty was called on the field, but upon league review, Watt was assessed a match penalty for violation of Elbowing (Rule 78.4), which carries an automatic one-game suspension (Rule 41.2).

Garrison was assessed a one-game suspension stemming from an elbowing incident on Toronto Rock transition player Ethan O'Connor at approximately the 2:48 mark of the third quarter of their game on April 5. No penalty was called on the field, but upon league review, Garrison was assessed a match penalty for violation of Elbowing (Rule 78.4), which carries an automatic one-game suspension (Rule 41.2).

Furthermore, an arbitrator has upheld the league's one-game suspension of Edmonton's John Lintz. Lintz will serve the suspension this weekend by sitting out Saturday night's game vs. Calgary.

Lintz was assessed a one-game suspension stemming from a fighting incident with Rochester's Joe Walters during their game on Saturday, March 29. A match penalty was assessed to both players on the field after their fight followed that of Edmonton's Chris Corbeil & Rochester's Johnny Powless, and upon league review of the incident, the match penalty for both was upheld for violation of Second Fight After The Original Fight (Rule 80.15), which carried an automatic one-game suspension (Rule 41.2).
