Kovalchuk suspended for one game.
The Atlanta Thrashers forward Ilya Kovalchuk has been suspended for one game for hitting Michal Roszival from behind in a game between the New-York Rangers and the Atlanta Trashers earlier this week.
Kovalchuk jumped and left the ice with his skates before hitting his opponent. The referee sent the player out of the game with a five minutes penalty and a game misconduct.
