Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Bollig has been handed a two-game suspension from the NHL Department of Player Safety. He will miss Games 5 and 6 for the Blackhawks against the Wild.

Bollig was suspended for his hit on Wild defenseman Keith Ballard in Game 4, being assesed a boarding penalty in the game.

In nine games this postseason, Bollig has no points, averaging 6:09 of ice time per game. The good news for the Hawks is that they have plenty of players that they can shuffle into the lineup in place of Bollig.
