SOG: 27 | +/-: 10
The incident in question occurred during the second period when Carcillo and Gilbert were chasing a puck into the Oilers' zone and Carcillo checked Gilbert into the boards. Gilbert was injured on the play and is expected to miss Tuesday night's game against Buffalo with a lower-body injury. Carcillo, who will have his hearing Wednesday afternoon, also appeared to be hurt on the play.

Carcillo was assessed a five-minute boarding penalty and a game misconduct for the hit. The Oilers would score twice on the ensuing power play en route to a 4-3 win.

The Blackhawks signed Carcillo this offseason to a one-year free agent contract worth $775,000. This season he has 2 goals and 9 assists in 28 games played.

Carcillo, who was offered an in-person hearing, has already been suspended previously this season.
