Oilers' Chiasson suspended one game for cross-checking Maple Leafs' Vesey

Check this out, as Oilers forward Alex Chiasson takes his anger out on Jimmy Vesey, by cross-checking him in the face, after the whistle sounds on the Maple Leafs 3-0 win.

The NHL's department of player safety announced Tuesday that Edmonton Oilers winger Alex Chiasson has been suspended one game for cross-checking Toronto Maple Leafs forward Jimmy Vesey during their matchup on Monday.

The incident occurred as the Maple Leafs' 3-0 win, a game which ended with players on both sides fighting, came to a close. After the final horn sounded, Chiasson and Vesey were seen talking near the Maple Leafs' blue line. Chiasson then cross-checked Vesey in the head twice before officials separated them.

Chiasson was given a five-minute major and a 10-minute misconduct for cross-checking on the play.

The Oilers and Maple Leafs return to the ice Wednesday night for a third-straight meeting. You can watch that game on Scotiabank Wednesday Night Hockey on Sportsnet beginning at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.
