Carter Ashton has been suspended for 20 games for violating terms of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program.

He claimed that he suffered an asthmatic spasm in late August while training and was given an inhaler by another player, which he used again in early at training camp. "I now recognize that I ingested Clenbuterol, a prohibited substance, through the inhaler," said Ashton in a statement. "However, at no time was I seeking to gain an athletic advantage or to knowingly violate the terms of the program. I used the inhaler in response to exercise-induced asthma, a condition that my doctor with the Toronto Maple Leafs has since diagnosed and he has prescribed me with an inhaler." Ashton has skated in just three games with the Maple Leafs this season. If the ban stands then he won't be eligible to return until Dec. 20.
