French forward Sacha Treille has been suspended five games at the IHHF World Hockey Championship for a vicious head shot on Roman Starchenko of Kazakhstan.
The six-foot-five French forward — who will likely miss the rest of the tournament — caught his smaller opponent with an elbow to the head in the neutral zone midway through a game between the countries on Sunday.
Starchenko was knocked out cold and a stretcher was brought on the ice, although the Kazak was helped off by teammates.
Treille earned a game misconduct and was given a match penalty, which came with an automatic one-game suspension.
