Senators D Claesson suspended two games

Dec 28, 2017 - 9:37 PM Ottawa Senators defenseman Fredrik Claesson was suspended two games by the NHL for an illegal check to the head of Boston Bruins forward Noel Acciari, the league announced Thursday.

The incident occurred at 15:01 of the first period of Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Bruins, prompting a scrum between the Atlantic Division rivals.

Claesson was assessed a five-minute major and a match penalty for an illegal check to the head.

The 25-year-old Swede has recorded one goal and one assist in 31 games this season for the Senators (11-16-8), who return to action Friday against the visiting the Columbus Blue Jackets.
