Edmonton Oilers defenceman Keith Aulie has been suspended for two games by the NHL Department of Player Safety after an illegal check to the head to Calgary Flames forward Matt Stajan on Wednesday night.
Aulie made contact with Stajan late in the first period, which resulted in a match penalty and game misconduct.
Stajan was shaken by the hit, but got up afterwords and got into a scuffle with Aulie.
On top of the suspension, Aulie will be without pay for the duration of his suspension and will forfeit US $8,602.16.
Josh Jooris ended up winning the game for Calgary 4-3 in overtime.
Aulie, 25, has played in 13 games this season for the Oilers and has been held pointless. Edmonton has won only once in its last 10 games.
