Former Michigan State Spartan Justin Abdelkader has been give a three-game suspension by the IIHF for a hit to the head of Czech forward Vladimir Sobotka (video include above). My youtube video also made the USA Today Sports page.

Helene St. James, USA TODAY Sports — The tournament showed both the good and ugly in Abdelkader’s game. He had three goals and four points in seven games — but he also managed to get suspended for two separate incidents. It was the severity of the second one — a hit to the head of Czech forward Vladimir Sobotka — that resulted in Tuesday’s announcement by the International Ice Hockey Federation of a three-game suspension. The suspension would take effect at the 2015 world championship (of course, there’s no guarantee Abdelkader will appear in the tournament).

The most depressing thing about last night’s 3-1 loss to the Padres?

1) Losing to a (now) 47-59 team coming off a rest and regroup day when the Brewers had already lost?

2) 0-6 with runners in scoring position against Tyson Ross, Blaine Boyer, Kevin Quackenbush and Joaquin Benoit?

3) Allen Craig wearing the collar – again – and dropping his average to .238 for the season while Oscar Taveras got another pinch hit in his only at bat?

4) Jason Mott getting torched – again – for another home run. His 7th on the season in only 21 innings of work, in one of the worst HR parks in MLB?

5) Losing a Lance Lynn start against a starting line-up that doesn’t feature one batter over .300 and 7 batters under .250?
