Following a hearing on Friday morning, the NHL’s Department of Player Safety has suspended Minnesota Wild forward Mason Shaw for two games effective immediately for kneeing San Jose Sharks forward Evgeny Svechnikov. Supplemental discipline was assessed as a result of the force of the knee-on-knee contact.

The incident occurred in the second period of Thursday night’s contest, and Shaw was issued a five-minute major penalty for interference and a game misconduct for the hit. Following the play, Svechnikov left the game and was assisted down the tunnel, eventually returning for the third period.
