The NHL suspended Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Robert Bortuzzo two games Wednesday for a late hit on New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr during Tuesday’s game at Consol Energy Center.

In its video explanation of the ruling, the Department of Player Safety used terms such as “extreme lateness” and “predatory nature” for a hit that resulted in “significant head contact.”

Jagr left Tuesday’s game as a result of the hit and didn’t return. His status for New Jersey’s next game is uncertain.
