Joni Pitkanen Suspended One Game, Will Miss Olympic Quarterfinals

Finnish defenseman Joni Pitkanen has been suspended one game for his hit on Sweden's Patric Hornqvist. Pitkanen was ejected from Sunday night's game and received a five-minute major penalty after delivering a high hit to Hornqvist in the second period of Sweden's 3-0 win.

Pitkanen will miss Finland's quarterfinal game while the status of Hornqvist, who missed the remained of the game, is not yet known. Both teams earned a bye into the round of eight.
