Watch the elbow to the head if you missed it earlier.
TORONTO (February 9, 2011)—New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov has been suspended for three games and will forfeit $68,548.38 for delivering a blow to the head of Carolina Hurricanes forward Zach Boychuk in NHL game #802 last night, the National Hockey League announced today.
“While he has not been involved in a supplemental discipline incident previously and it is fortunate that his opponent returned to play in the game, Volchenkov delivered an illegal blow to the head,” said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell.
