BOUCHERVILLE, Que. - Cape Breton Screaming Eagles forward Francis Brunelle was handed a five-game suspension by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Wednesday.

Brunelle delivered a questionable hit in a game a night earlier against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.

In a statement, the QMJHL said the main point of impact was the opponent's head and there was no effort made to minimize the impact.

Brunelle, a five-foot-11, 206-pound native of Bromont, Que., has one assist and 48 penalty minutes in 13 games this season.
