The NHL announced on Wednesday evening that Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen has been suspended one game for his hit to the head of Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa on Tuesday night.

He had a disciplinary hearing with the league on Wednesday afternoon.

The incident occurred less than two minutes into the third period of Chicago's 4-3 shootout win. Hossa left the game and did not return. He was knocked out of last year's playoff series against Phoenix after suffering a concussion when he was hit by Coyotes forward Raffi Torres.

Hansen doesn't have a track record of being a dirty player, but it's the second time this season he has drawn attention to himself. Earlier this season, he avoided discipline from the league when he appeared to cross-check a referee in the back during a skirmish before a faceoff in a game against the San Jose Sharks.
