Caps' Zednik Suspended

Washington Capitals left wing Richard Zednik was suspended for four games and fined $1,000 by the NHL Friday for high-sticking Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Daniil Markov in a game Wednesday night.

Zednik received a match penalty for deliberate injury on the play, which occurred at 6:52 of the third period.

He missed Friday night's game against Ottawa, and will be kept out of games Saturday at Boston, Nov. 25 against Pittsburgh and Nov. 27 at Dallas.
