Leafs winger David Clarkson has been suspended for two games for his hit to the head of St. Louis Blues’ centre Vladimir Sobotka. The incident occurred in Toronto’s 6-3 loss on Thursday night. Clarkson was assessed a two-minute minor penalty on the play.
At the beginning of the year, Clarkson was suspended 10 games for leaving the bench during a pre-season game versus Buffalo.
Leafs players Clarkson, Dion Phaneuf, Carton Ashton, Nazem Kadri and Phil Kessel (pre-season) have all been suspended at some point during the 2013-14 campaign.
