Brock McBride of Villach SV has been suspended for two games following an attack on leading scorer Mathis Olimb on September 7th.
McBride was a assessed a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for sucker punching the Frölunda star late in the game. As a result, McBride will miss the remainder of the group stage of the Champions Hockey League season.
Frölunda is now tied with Genève-Servette with 9 points atop the group C, while Villach remains third with 6 points. Frolunda has been a popular team this year, as both Olimb and team-mate Andreas Johansson have been atop the tournament scoring charts so far.
