Sharks’ Karlsson suspended two games for illegal check to the head

TSN

San Jose Sharks defenceman Erik Karlsson has been suspended two games by the NHL Department of Player Safety for an illegal check to the head of Los Angeles Kings forward Austin Wagner during Saturday's game.

The incident occurred in the second period when Karlsson connected with a big hit on Wagner near centre ice. Karlsson’s shoulder appeared to make contact with Wagner's head, but no penalty was called on the play. Wagner struggled to get back to the bench following the hit and was forced to leave the game.
