NEW YORK (AP) _ Defenseman Vitaly Vishnevski of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks was suspended for two games without pay by the NHL on Friday for elbowing Pittsburgh defenseman Michal Rozsival in a game on Wednesday.

No penalty was assessed on the play.

Vishnevski was also suspended for one preseason game last September. The suspension will cost him $23,780.48 and he will miss games on Friday against Chicago and Sunday against St. Louis.
