Confirmed 8 games for Wisniewski. Which means he waived his right to an in-person hearing which a player has a right to for five-games plus

added 6:41pm, Quote from Colin Campbell,

“Mr. Wisniewski delivered a retaliatory hit to the head of an opponent who never had possession of the puck,” said Colin Campbell, NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations. “The fact that Mr. Wisniewski is a repeat offender also entered into this decison.”

added 7:05pm, Bettman addressed the head hits, etc. in his weekly NHL Hour.  Read about it at NHL.com.

added 7:07pm, via the Ducks PR department,

Statement from James Wisniewski on his suspension

“I am truly sorry that my friend Brent Seabrook was hurt on the play. I certainly wish him the best. I am, however, very disappointed in the length of the suspension. Eight games is incredibly hard to swallow, especially in comparison to other recent hits that have resulted in lesser punishment.”
