Joffrey Lupul has received a two-game suspension from the league for an illegal check to the head of Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman.

The incident occurred early in the third period Wednesday night and it earned Lupul a two-minute penalty on the play. Since coming back from a fractured forearm, Lupul has recorded three goals and one assist in two games. He will be eligible to return on March 25th against Boston.
