One of the most highly-touted prospects in this year's upcoming draft has been suspended due to an ugly hit he threw last week.

Cape Breton Screaming Eagles' forward Pierre-Luc Dubois has been suspended by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League until further notice.

Dubois shoved Saint Johns Sea Dogs' defenseman Luke Green in the back while at top speed on the forecheck on Saturday night.

How long his suspension will be has yet to be seen, but one thing is for sure, Dubois certainly plays the game with an edge.

He has been climbing the draft boards this season after scoring 42 goals and 99 points in 62 games for the Screaming Eagles. However, he also has the 11th-most penalty minutes among all QMJHL skaters.
