Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds defenceman Kevin Spinozzi has been suspended eight games by the Ontario Hockey League after an illegal hit on Sarnia's Davis Brown.

Spinozzi hit the Sting forward during the second period of Sarnia's 3-1 win Sunday.

Brown, who was skating in open ice without the puck when he was hit, left the game and Spinozzi was initially assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for checking to the head.

Spinozzi's suspension includes the Greyhounds 3-1 win over the Sudbury Wolves on Wednesday, in which he didn't play.
