Rinaldo will miss the final four games of the regular season and will forfeit $15,384.60 in salary.
He injured Buffalo Sabres defenseman Chad Ruhwedel in the third period of Sunday's game. Ruhwedel will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a concussion.
Rinaldo leads the Flyers with 153 penalty minutes.
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren called the suspension ''harsh.''
