BOSTON (CBS) – Sabres forward John Scott has been suspended for seven games for an illegal check to the head of Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson.

The check occurred at 5:49 of the third period last Wednesday in Buffalo. The Bruins won the game 5-2.

Scott, who has never been suspended before, will lose $26,923.

Scott has already served three games of the suspension while awaiting an in-person hearing that was held Thursday morning.

Eriksson left the game with a concussion and is out indefinitely.
