NEW YORK (AP) - Bruins forward Brad Marchand has been suspended for five games by the NHL because of a hit on the Canucks' Sami Salo.

The league considers Marchand a repeat offender. He received a two-game suspension in March 2011.

Marchand clipped Salo just before the end of the second period of Saturday night's game, receiving a major penalty and a game misconduct.

He will be able to return Jan. 19 against the Devils and will forfeit more than $150,000 in pay.
