Dougie Hamilton suspended 10 games

The Ontario Hockey League announced Thursday that Niagara defenseman Dougie Hamilton, the Bruins’ 2011 first-round pick, has been suspended 10 games.

Hamilton hit Sudbury’s Michael McDonald in the head with a high elbow in last Friday’s game between the IceDogs and the Wolves. Taken into consideration by the OHL was the fact that McDonald suffered a concussion on the play.

The ninth overall pick in June, Hamilton has put together a strong second season in the OHL. In 34 games, Hamilton has 13 goals and 37 assists for 50 points.
