The NHL has issued a statement that Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Pavel Kubina has been suspended for 3 games after elbowing Chicago's Dave Bolland in the head.
Kubina will forfeit close to $61,000 in salary. He will be eligible to return March 17th vs. Montreal.
This hit comes just 2 days after the Zdeno Chara-Max Pacioretty incident. To me, I think it is ridiculous that Chara doesn't get any kind of suspension seeing he put Pacioretty in the hospital and Kubina gets 3 games for an elbow that doesn't even get called as a penalty. Now don't get me wrong, I think Kubina should be suspended, I just also feel like Chara should have been disciplined as well.
