Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall was suspended two games by the NHL Friday for kneeing Wild forward Cal Clutterbuck during Thursday night's game...

Hall initiated a collision at center ice late in the 3rd period of the Wild's 3-1 win.   Clutterbuck suffered a thigh contusion on the play and had to be helped off the ice.   He was on crutches on Friday and did not practice with the team in Calgary.   Clutterbuck will not play against the Flames on Saturday night.

Along with the two game suspension, Hall will forfeit $9,729.72, which is based on his annual salary.   Hall was assessed a major penalty for kneeing and a game misconduct.
