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

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