Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist has been suspended for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Bruins following his Game 2 hit on Matt Grzelcyk late in the first period.
Grzelcyk did not return to the game and was sent to the hospital. The next day, he was put in the league's concussion protocol.
Sundqvist is the fifth out of five players during these playoffs to receive a suspension following a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety; Nikita Kucherov (one game), Joe Thornton (one), Nazem Kadri (five), and Charlie McAvoy (one) are the others.
John Moore will likely fill in for Grzelcyk for the time being.
There's a chance Grzelcyk could return by the end of the series, but it seems pretty unlikely that he plays in Games 3 and 4, as he didn't travel with the team to St. Louis.
Grzelcyk hasn't missed a game this playoff season yet. In 19 games, he has three goals and four assists, with five of those seven points coming on the power-play.
