Flyers' Zolnierczyk suspended four games for charging Ottawa defenceman Lundin

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NHL suspended Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk four games Sunday for charging Ottawa defenceman Mike Lundin.

The incident happened Saturday midway through the first period of the Senators 2-1 loss in Philadelphia. Zolnierczyk launched himself into Lundin as the Ottawa forward was cutting into the Flyers' zone.

Lundin has since been diagnosed with a concussion, adding to the Senators' growing list of injured players.

Zolnierczyk, who was assessed a major penalty for charging and game misconduct on the play, will forfeit US$12,972.96 in salary.

The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
