Montreal Canadiens forward Ryan White has been suspended for five games for an illegal hit to the head of Flyers defenceman Kent Huskins during a game on Monday night.

The suspension came after White had an in-person hearing with the league at the NHL offices in New York on Wednesday morning. He will serve the first game of the ban when the Canadiens play in Pittsburgh against the Penguins.

White was ejected for the hit which came 6:11 into the first period of Philadelphia's 7-3 win. Huskins left the game with what the Flyers said was a concussion.

White launched himself at the veteran Huskins, but missed his body and caught him square on the jaw.

This is White's first suspension in 88 career NHL games over three seasons.
