PHILADELPHIA - Flyers forward Dan Carcillo has been suspended without pay for the first two games of next season for confronting officials during this year's playoffs.

NHL senior vice-president Mike Murphy announced the ruling Tuesday. Carcillo acknowledged during a hearing that he regrets his actions.

The league says Carcillo "engaged in aggressive behaviour and inappropriate conduct directed at the officials" between the first and second periods of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Boston.

Carcillo also confronted linesman Brian Murphy at the Flyers' bench and argued with him before the start of the second period.
