 TORONTO (AP) -The NHL suspended Vancouver defenseman Mattias Ohlund for four games Sunday for his stick-swinging hit on Minnesota forward Mikko Koivu.
Koivu was injured in the third period Friday night after getting whistled for an elbowing penalty. Ohlund responded by swinging his stick and slashing Koivu, cracking a bone in the forward's left leg.
Koivu has five goals with 11 assists in 19 games for the Wild. He will miss about a week.
Ohlund will forfeit $74,866.32 in salary.
