    Jack Eichel gets two-game suspension for head hit against Avalanche

    Eichel has been given a two-game suspension by the NHL's Department of Player Safety for his hit to the head of Colorado's Carl Soderberg during Saturday's game in the Pepsi Center. Eichel had a phone hearing with the league earlier Sunday and the resulting ban was his first fine or suspension in his four-year NHL career.

    Clearly expecting Eichel to be suspended, the Sabres recalled Alexander Nylander from Rochester on Sunday.

    Eichel was given an "illegal check to the head" penalty at 14:48 of the second period after appearing to pick Soderberg's head as the pair was engaged in a puck battle in the neutral zone. Soderberg went down briefly on his stomach but got up and headed to the bench. He played the rest of the game and appeared to be uninjured.

    two games seems harsh but i can see why they need to punish that head-first contact

    not that it matters that much now. lets see if nylander can do anything

    It is not a secret that Eichel has been given a two-game suspension. Now let's see if professional ice hockey player William Nylander can do anything.
