Anton Volchenkov Suspended Four Games

by Thomas Willis / Nashville Predators

The NHL Department of Player Safety announced Sunday that Nashville Predators defenseman Anton Volchenkov has been suspended for four games.

The news came following an incident in the Predators 4-3 loss to the Calgary Flames on Friday. In the second period of that game, Volchenkov hit Flames forward Michael Ferland in the head during a collision of the pair in the neutral zone.

Calgary announced earlier today that Ferland suffered a concussion on the play.

The absence of Volchenkov from the Predators lineup will last for the remainder of the six-game road trip that the club is currently on. Nashville takes on the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena tonight at 8:30 p.m. (CT).

Blueliner Victor Bartley is expected to take Volchenkov's spot in the Preds lineup.
