The National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety has just handed down another suspension.

24-year-old Tampa Bay Lightning center Cedric Pcquette has been awarded a one-game suspension for an ugly hit from behind delivered to Boston Bruins defenseman Torey Krug on Wednesday night. 

The hit was in clear violation of the rules and could have resulted in serious injury to Krug who went head first into the boards after being drilled in the back by Paquette.
