Rangers forward Daniel Carcillo has been suspended for 10 games after being assessed a game misconduct penalty for pushing a game official, the NHL announced Friday.

Carcillo shoved linesman Scott Driscoll, who was attempting to separate Carcillo from Canadiens forward Brandon Prust during the first period of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Carcillo had drawn a two-minute charging penalty shortly after Prust broke Ranger Derek Stepan's jaw with a high hit.

Carcillo's contact with Driscoll earned him an immediate ejection and subsequent suspension under the following league rule:

Rule 40.3 Physical Abuse of Officials -- Category II states: "Any player who deliberately applies physical force to an official in any manner (excluding actions as set out in Category I), which physical force is applied without intent to injure, or who spits on an official, shall be automatically suspended for not less than ten (10) games."
