NEW YORK -- Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith has been suspended for one game for high-sticking Los Angeles Kings forward Jeff Carter during Game 3 of the Western Conference Final in Los Angeles on Tuesday, June 4, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 7:58 of the second period. Keith was assessed a double-minor penalty for high-sticking.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
