Hansen suspended for hit on Hossa

NEW YORK -- Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen has been suspended one game for a hit to the head on Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa.

Hansen struck Hossa in the back of the head with his forearm during the third period of the Blackhawks' 4-3 win Tuesday. Hossa was reaching for a puck in the air as Hansen, who had also reached for the puck, closed his glove and delivered the hit.

The injury knocked Hossa out of the game after he had already scored two goals. There is still no timeline for his return.

Hansen, who was assessed a minor penalty for roughing after the hit, will forfeit US$7,297.30 and will miss the Canucks' game in Dallas today.
