Pepin is eligible to return to the Foreurs line up on Feb. 22, 2015 against the Quebec Remparts.

During the same game, Islanders players Ross Johnston and Guillaume Rioux-Legault were given one-game suspensions for an altercation or a fight at the end of a game. Both served their suspension Sunday in Rouyn-Noranda.

Foreurs forward Anthony Richard was also suspended one game.

Both teams were fined $1,000 for inappropriate behaviors at the end of the game. Rioux-Legault was also handed a $500 fine with his suspension.
