The National Hockey League announced Saturday that Atlanta Thrashers forward Ben Eager would be suspended for four games. Eager sucker punched Toronto’s winger Colby Armstrong in the loss on Friday.

Eager with his suspension will lose over $20,000 from his salary. In 34 games, Eager has scored just 3 goals, and 7 assists; along with 77 penalty minutes. The Thrashers have not discredited Eager for his performance this season based on scoring. His presence is vital to the success of Atlanta.

The Thrashers are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference; just three games ahead of the Montreal Canadians. Atlanta’s next game will be on Sunday at Carolina, against the Hurricanes. Following that, the Thrashers will come home to take on the Philadelphia Flyers at Philips Arena.
