Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Pavel Kubina has been suspended for three games for his hit on Chicago Blackhawks center Dave Bolland.

In the first period of the Blackhawks’ 4-3 shootout loss, Kubina delivered an elbow to the head of Bolland. Bolland left the game and wouldn’t return.

In addition to the suspension, Kubina will be fined $60,096.76, which is based off his average salary for three games. The money will be put towards the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
