Ducks D James Wisniewski suspended for forearm hit on Coyotes' Shane Doan

TORONTO - Anaheim Ducks defenceman James Wisniewski was suspended for two games because he hit Phoenix's Shane Doan in the forehead with his arm.

The NHL announced the suspension Monday, two days after Wisniewski delivered the blow to Doan's head in the first period of the Coyotes' 3-2 shootout win Saturday night.

Wisniewski, who didn't receive a penalty on the play, will also lose more than US$28,000 in pay for sitting out Tuesday night against Pittsburgh and Thursday night against Nashville.
