Last night during the third period of the Anaheim’s 3-0 loss to Colorado, Gabriel Landeskog cross checked Simon Despres around the neck area. No penalty was called on the play. Today the NHL suspended him for three games.
Landeskog is a repeat offender as he was suspended for two games back in November for his hit on Boston’s Marchand. Per the NHL, a player is considered a repeat offender for 18 months following his most recent incident that resulted in a suspension. His status as a repeat offender in this category is used to determine the amount of salary forfeited should he receive another suspension.
