(Philadelphia, PA) – Philadelphia Flyers forward Dan Carcillo was suspended for four games by the National Hockey League for his actions during a game on December 5 at the Wachovia Center. Carcillo was issued 29 penalty minutes on a single play, when he engaged in an altercation with the Captials’ Matt Bradley and was ejected from the game.

General manager Paul Holmgren issued the following statement on Sunday regarding the suspension:

“Decisions come down from the league…do I agree with them all? No. I certainly do not agree with this one. We do not have a lot of recourse in this situation. Dan will serve his suspension, and we will move on.”

Carcillo’s penalty, in which he knocked down Bradley with a single punch while both players were dropping their gloves, resulted in a nine-minute power play for the Capitals, in which they scored three times en route to an 8-2 victory.

“Everything happened pretty quick, I saw him drop his gloves, so I started punching him,” Carcillo told CSNPhilly.com after the game.

“He kind of came at me the shift before. He was talking to me before. I thought we were going to fight. I don’t know why he waited so long to drop his gloves.”

In 26 games this season, Carcillo has two goals and three assists for five points and 87 penalty minutes.

He will be eligible to return on December 14, when the Flyers visit the Boston Bruins.
