Ryan Getzlaf received a one-game suspension by the IIHF for kneeing in Canada's final game during the 2012 World Championship.

Getzlaf will serve the punishment in the first game of the 2013 tournament if he participates in it. Obviously, that will at least partially depend on how far Getzlaf gets in the 2013 NHL playoffs. He's also currently scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next summer, so he might balk at participating in the tournament and risking injury unless he has already re-signed by that point.
