2 Slovaks get multigame suspensions for head hits

Slovakian defensemen Martin Marincin and Peter Hrasko have been issued multigame suspensions for hits to the head during a 6-1 loss to the United States at the World Junior Hockey Championships.
Marincin was suspended four games for a vicious elbow that left forward Jason Zucker woozy in the third period Tuesday. Hrasko was suspended three games for a hit on forward Jerry D'Amigo in the first period.
Both Slovaks were ejected and face an automatic one-game suspension. Disciplinary judge Dan Marouelli ruled Wednesday that further suspensions were warranted.
Canada forward Zack Kassian has also been suspended for two games for a hit that knocked out Czech Republic defenseman Petr Senkerik in a 7-2 win Tuesday.
