02:57 PM ET 04.11 | New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov has been suspended four games by the NHL Department of Player Safety for elbowing Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand in the head. Volchenkov will forfeit $91,891.88 of salary, which will be donated to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.Volchenkov had been previously suspended in 2011 for a similar play, which resulted in a three-game suspension. He is not defined as a repeat offender under the collective bargaining agreement, but in the league's announcement they made note of his 'history.' The Bruins have yet to update Marchand's status.
