Russian forward Maxim Shalunov suspended for a game at world junior championship

UFA, Russia - Russian forward Maxim Shalunov has been suspended for a game at the world junior hockey championship.

The Chicago Blackhawks draft pick cross-checked Slovakia's defenceman Tomas Nechala during a game Wednesday.

Nechala suffered a facial laceration requiring medical treatment.

Shalunov received a double-minor penalty on the play, but the incident was later reviewed by the International Ice Hockey Federation's disciplinary committee.

Shalunov will sit out Friday's game against the United States.

Quote of the Day

We've got a team filled with captains, that's what I think. With these first two games we got in, we're really dominating and moving the puck really fast, and it's worked out really good.
