Anaheim Ducks forward Antoine Vermette was suspended for 10 games without pay for slashing a linesman during a game, the NHL announced Thursday.

Vermette slapped his stick against the back legs of linesman Shandor Alphonso after losing a faceoff to Minnesota’s Mikko Koivu during the third period of Anaheim’s 1-0 victory on Tuesday.

Vermette will lose $97,222.22 in salary under terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

There was no immediate word on whether Vermette will appeal the discipline.
