by NHL.com Staff

Sarnia Sting center Pavel Zacha, an A-rated skater on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary players to watch list, was suspended two games by the Ontario Hockey League on Thursday for an incident that occurred in a loss to the Niagara IceDogs on Nov. 8, according to the OHL website.

Zacha, who has seven goals, nine points and a plus-2 rating in his first season with the Sting, was given a match penalty for a slew foot that took place six minutes into the game against the IceDogs. Zacha will be eligible to return to the lineup on Nov. 20 against the Windsor Spitfires.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound left-handed shot was taken by the Sting with the first pick of the 2014 Canadian Hockey League Import Draft on July 2. He played in five games for the Czech Republic at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship and had three goals and two assists to help the Czechs win the silver medal at the 2014 IIHF World Under-18 Championship.
