(WSCR) Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith has been suspended five games for his hit to the head of Canucks forward Daniel Sedin during Wednesday’s game in Chicago.

Keith received the suspension during a phone hearing with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety on Friday afternoon.

He was offered the chance to have an in-person hearing with the league but he waived that opportunity.

Here’s an explanation for Keith’s suspension from Senior Vice President of Player Safety and Hockey Operations, Brendan Shanahan.
