Milan Lucic is back in hot water with the NHL after sucker-punching an opponent Saturday night.
NHL Player Safety on Sunday announced Lucic has been suspended two games without pay for roughing Columbus Blue Jackets forward Kole Sherwood behind the Calgary Flames’ net in the second period of Saturday night’s contest at Nationwide Arena.
Sherwood attempted to jab at a puck covered by Flames netminder David Rittich shortly before getting clocked.

Lucic initially was assessed two minor penalties for roughing. Now, the former Boston Bruin will miss out on nearly $65 thousand due to his conduct.
