Anaheim Ducks center Antoine Vermette was ejected from Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Wild for slashing an official with his stick.
The NHL announced Thursday that Vermette will be suspended 10 games for the incident.
The incident took place in the third period.

The hit is not as bad as last year's incident by Calgary’s Dennis Wideman, who resulted in a 20-game suspension for hitting linesman Don Henderson.
