SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) An Adirondack Flames player has been suspended 12 games by the American Hockey League for slamming an opposing player's head onto the ice during a game.

Left-wing Trevor Gillies skated up to Rochester rookie forward William Carrier during a scrum, punched him several times and slammed his head on the ice as he went down.

Gillies was assessed two game misconducts, a fighting major and an instigating minor during the third period of the Flames' 6-1 loss in Rochester on Friday. Carrier did not throw a punch during the melee.

While playing for the New York Islanders during the 2010-11 season, Gillies was suspended nine games for punching a player. The first game back, he was ejected for a hit and suspended another 10 games.

Gillies is eligible to return to the lineup on Nov. 15.
