Cam Janssen suspended five games Add to ...

Cam Janssen's Winter Olympics hockey break has been extended five NHL games.

The St. Louis Blues forward was suspended Thursday for five games, without pay, as a result of a late hit to the head on Washington Capitals winger Matt Bradley.

The incident occurred in the first period of 4-3 Blues win on Feb. 13 in St. Louis. Janssen drew a five-minute interference call, resulting in a game misconduct, after his blindside check led to a fight with Quintin Laing. Bradley favoured his left leg leaving the ice and did not return.

Janssen will forfeit US$14,248 and will be eligible to return on March 14 at Minnesota.
