The incident, which occurred with just over eight minutes remaining in Tuesday’s game against the St. Louis Blues, saw Farnham throw the brutal hit right after being checked into the end boards by Kevin Shattenkirk. He was issued a major penalty for interference.
The suspension will see the 26-year-old winger forfeit $12,365.60 in salary.
This is Farnham’s second case of league-implemented discipline in the past week, as he received a $2,000 fine for diving/embellishment on Jan. 7.
