Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith has been suspended five games elbowing Daniel Sedin in the head in Wednesday night's win over the Vancouver Canucks, according to ESPN Chicago.

The incident occurred at the 13:36 in the first period -- Keith elbowed Sedin in the neutral zone, and Sedin had to be helped off the ice. He played one shift on the power play and then left the game for good.

Keith will begin serving the suspension Sunday, when the Blackhawks host the Nashville Predators. He will lose $149,688 in salary.
