NEW YORK, N.Y. - Anaheim Ducks forward Nate Thompson was suspended Monday for three games without pay for an illegal check to the head of Carolina defenceman Justin Faulk during a 5-1 loss to the Hurricanes last week.

The NHL said that based on his average annual salary, Thompson will forfeit $25,806, which will go to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Thompson was assessed a major penalty for elbowing and a game misconduct following the hit on Faulk during the first period of last Friday's game.

Thompson has played in four games with the Ducks this season, collecting two assists.
