Winnipeg Jets forward Brenden Dillon has been suspended three games by the NHL's Department of Player Safety for his actions against Pittsburgh Penguins forward Noel Acciari.
Because it was a telephone hearing, Dillon could not receive a suspension for more than five games.
Dillon received a game misconduct after he illegally hit Acciari in the head just four minutes into the second half of Tuesday night's game between the Jets and Gowins.
Dillon has scored 6 goals and 9 assists in 47 games since the start of the season, his third with the Jets.
Johnson was energized, Crevier recalls
The Chicago Blackhawks have recalled Quebec defenseman Louis Crevier from the Rockford IceHogs.
Crevier played 15 games this season with the Hawks and recorded three assists.
Chicago also announced that Tyler Johnson's name was removed from the injured list. Johnson will return to action on Wednesday night against the Minnesota Wild. The 33-year-old has been out of action since December 31 due to a foot injury.
Pospisil stays with the flames
Forward Martin Pospisil's tryout with the Calgary Flames appears to have been fruitful.
The Alberta team announced on Wednesday that it had extended the contract of the 24-year-old Slovakian winger for two seasons, with an annual salary of $1 million.
Pospisil made his NHL debut on November 4, against the Seattle Kraken. He also scored a goal in his first match.
Throughout his senior season, Pospisil scored 11 points (4-7) in 34 games.
He was a fourth-round pick (105th overall) by the Flames in the 2018 draft.
