NHL suspends Montreal's White for five games for illegal hit on Flyers' Huskins

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NHL has suspended Montreal Canadiens forward Ryan White for five games for an illegal check to the head of Philadelphia defenceman Kent Huskins.

The incident occurred at 6:11 of the first period of Montreal's 7-3 loss to the Flyers on Monday. White attempted to deliver an open-ice hit to Huskins as the defenceman came out from behind the Philadelphia net, but White misses Huskins' body and hits him primarily in the head.

White was assessed a match penalty for illegal check to the head on the play.

Huskins left the game with what the Flyers say is a concussion.

White will forfeit $18,581.10. The money goes to the Players'Emergency Assistance Fund.

He will start his suspension Wednesday night when Montreal visits Pittsburgh.
