NHL slaps Edmonton Oilers forward Tayler Hall with two-game suspension

NEW YORK, - The NHL suspended forward Taylor Hall of the Edmonton Oilers two games without pay Friday for kneeing Minnesota's Cal Clutterbuck.

Hall received a five-minute major and game misconduct for kneeing Clutterbuck at 17:27 of the third period of the Wild's 3-1 victory Thursday night. Hall subsequently had a hearing with the National Hockey League Department of Player Safety on Friday.

As a result of the suspension, Hall will forfeit US$9,729.72 in salary. He will miss Edmonton's games Saturday against Phoenix and Monday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Taylor will be eligible to return to Edmonton's lineup Thursday when the Oilers face the Dallas Stars.
