Sharks captain Joe Thornton [1], known around these parts as that guy who wore No. 19 before Tyler Seguin [2], has been suspended for two games for his questionable hit to the head of Blues center David Perron, reports Pierre LeBrun of ESPN [3].

Colin Campbell [4] did not decide on the suspension because he was travelling, LeBrun writes. Instead, NHL [5] vice president of hockey operations Mike Murphy made the call.
