Ryan White has been suspended five games for his illegal check to the head of Philadelphia Flyers Kent Huskins.

The incident occurred Monday night and it earned White a match penalty. White has played recklessly this season, but he doesn’t have a history of suspensions. In 25 games, he has compiled 48 hits and 67 penalty minutes. He will be eligible to return for Montreal’s final regular season match against Toronto on April 27th.
