Center Vadim Shipachyov was suspended by the Vegas Golden Knights on Sunday.
The Golden Knights assigned Shipachyov to Chicago of the American Hockey League on Oct. 24. He did not play in Chicago's 2-1 victory against Milwaukee on Saturday, and Sportsnet reported that he was suspended after leaving the team.
The Golden Knights signed Shipachyov, 30, to a two-year, $9 million contract on May 4. Playing for SKA St. Petersburg in 2016-17, Shipachyov was third in the Kontinental Hockey League with 76 points (26 goals, 50 assists) in 50 games.
Shipachyov began the season with Chicago but was recalled by the Golden Knights and scored a goal in his NHL debut against the Boston Bruins on Oct. 15. It was his only point in three games with Vegas before being sent back to Chicago.
