Moore was assessed a match penalty for his cheap shot during the game, when he used his elbow to drill Haula in the head.
It is Moore's second illegal hit to an opponent's head in the span of 12 games, which makes this five-game ban seem a little lax — even if he is considered a repeat offender. Moore earned a two-game suspension during last season's playoffs for an illegal shot to the head.
This time he will forfeit $51,859.75 in salary, which will go to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
#rangers John Moore hearing will be at 1pm tomorrow. Moore opted to do it on the phone even if the league requested an in-person hearing.

Sounds like Moore is still being a jerk even off the ice.
