Canada's Boone Jenner and Russia's Ildar Isangulov have each been suspended for their next games at the world junior hockey championship.
Jenner will sit out Canada's bronze-medal contest Thursday against Finland while Isangulov won't play in Russia's gold-medal showdown against Sweden later in the day.
In the second period of Canada's 6-5 semi-final loss to Russia on Tuesday, Isangulov elbowed Jenner and received a minor penalty for it.
When Russian captain Evgeni Kuznetsov made a comment to Jenner after the incident, Jenner speared him and received a major and game misconduct.
The International Ice Hockey Federation's disciplinary hearing determined upon review that Isangulov's elbow was to Jenner's head.
