AHL suspends Moose forward Michael Spacek for 3 games

Via the Grand Rapids Press’s Peter J. Wallner on Twitter, the AHL appears to have picked a player out of last night’s scrums between the Griffins and Moose and chosen to suspend him:

AHL announces suspension

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League today announced that Manitoba Moose forward Michael Spacek has been suspended for three (3) games as a consequence of his actions in a playoff game at Grand Rapids on Apr. 25.
Spacek will miss Manitoba’s next three games beginning with Game 4 of the Central Division Semifinals, tonight (Apr. 26) at Grand Rapids.
(If Manitoba is eliminated before the suspension can be served to completion this postseason, remaining games would carry over to the next time Spacek is active on an AHL club roster.)
Spacek was called for two penalties last night–a 10-minute unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, and a 10-minute game misconduct for leaving the Moose’s bench to continue an altercation.
