The Lehigh Valley Phantoms were hit by a suspension on Sunday afternoon. Nicolas Aube-Kubel will miss the next two games after the AHL suspended him for his illegal hit to the head during Friday night’s contest.
He received a two-minute minor for his check to the head at the 1:18 mark on the second period. Aube-Kubel was suspended under the provisions of AHL Rule 28.1 (supplementary discipline).
He will miss Lehigh Valley’s games today (Mar. 4) at Hershey and Friday (Mar. 9) vs. Bridgeport. He recorded three points en route to a come-from-behind 7-6 win on Friday. Aube-Kubel had two goals, including the game-winner.
Here’s a look at the check by Aube-Kubel.
