New York, NY (Sports Network) - The National Hockey League levied a one-
game suspension on Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen on Wednesday.
Hansen was punished for delivering an elbow to the head of Chicago Blackhawks
forward Marian Hossa in the third period of Chicago's 4-3 shootout victory on
Tuesday. Hansen was given a minor for roughing on the play.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and based on his
average annual salary, Hansen will forfeit $7,297.30 that will go to the
Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
Hansen will miss Thursday's contest in Dallas and will be eligible to return
when the Canucks play in Nashville on Friday.
