OTTAWA (AP) -Anaheim defenseman Chris Pronger received a one-game suspension Sunday for his hit to the head of Ottawa forward Dean McAmmond in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals.
Pronger, who also was given a one-game ban during the Western Conference finals, leveled McAmmond with an arm to the head Saturday night in the Ducks' 5-3 loss to the Senators. Pronger will miss Game 4 of the series, that Anaheim leads 2-1, on Monday night. He is eligible to return for Game 5 back in Anaheim on Wednesday.
It is the sixth career suspension for the 6-foot-6, 220-pound, hard-hitting defenseman. During the Western Conference final against Detroit, Pronger was suspend for Game 4 after a hit to the head of Red Wings forward Tomas Holmstrom against the boards.
Pronger wasn't penalized on the ice for either of the hits that led to his postseason suspensions.
