TORONTO - The NHL suspended Anaheim Ducks forward Evgeny Artyukhin for three games Thursday after a slew-footing incident during a game against the Dallas Stars.
No penalty was called on the play, which occurred early in the second period of the Stars' 4-2 road victory Wednesday night.
Matt Niskanen is listed as day-to-day after suffering a head injury on the play.
Artyukhin, who forfeits US$34,756.11 in salary, will be eligible to return Oct. 31 at Phoenix.
