Volchenkov suspended three games
Eligible to return Feb. 18 vs. Rangers
“While he has not been involved in a supplemental discipline incident previously and it is fortunate that his opponent returned to play in the game, Volchenkov delivered an illegal blow to the head," said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell.
The incident occurred at 9:02 of the second period and Volchenkov was assessed a minor penalty for elbowing. The Devils won the game 3-2 in overtime.
Volchenkov will miss the Devils' next three games – Feb. 10 at Toronto, Feb. 11 vs. San Jose and Feb. 16 vs. Carolina. He is eligible to return Feb. 18 vs. New York Rangers.
