NEW YORK (AP) — Anaheim Ducks right wing Corey Perry has been suspended for four games without pay by the NHL for a high, late check on Minnesota’s Jason Zucker.

The punishment was announced by the league on Wednesday.

Zucker was leveled by a violent hit from Perry in the second period nearly a full second after he passed the puck in Tuesday’s 2-1 win by the Ducks.

Perry received a major penalty for interference and a game misconduct. Perry hit Zucker in the head with his elbow as they collided, and Zucker was down for several minutes before slowly leaving the ice. He didn’t return to the game.

Perry received a four-game suspension four years ago for elbowing Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux.
