Simon struck New York Rangers forward Ryan Hollweg in the face with his stick in a game Thursday night. The hit flattened Hollweg with 6:31 remaining and left him motionless on his stomach for several minutes in the Rangers' zone.

Simon was immediately ejected from the game, slapped with a match penalty for deliberate attempt to injure.

Hollweg recovered, came back in the game, and needed only a few stitches to repair a cut on his chin.

Simon's suspension is without pay.
