NEW YORK (AP) - Pittsburgh defenseman Deryk Engelland will miss three games after being suspended by the NHL for an illegal check to the head.

The league punished Engelland for hitting Chicago forward Marcus Kruger during Tuesday night's game. No penalty was assessed on the hit 8:55 into the game.

Engelland will forfeit almost $9,200 and miss games Friday night at Winnipeg, Dec. 27 against Carolina and Dec. 29 against Philadelphia before he is able to return to face New Jersey on New Year's Eve.
