Chicago Blackhawks forward Drake Caggiula has been suspended for one game following an illegal check to the head of Edmonton Oilers forward Tyler Ennis, the NHL's Department of Player Safety announced on Sunday afternoon. Caggiula's right shoulder made contact with Ennis' head at 7:42 of the second period on Saturday in the series opener of the best-of-five Western Conference qualifying round.

Ennis was assessed a delay of game penalty for shooting the puck over the glass after absorbing the hit from Caggiula, who was not whistled for an infraction. Caggiula, 26, registered four hits and one blocked shot in 11:25 of ice time during the Blackhawks' 6-4 win over the Oilers in Edmonton on Saturday. Game 2 is Monday night.

This is the first time Caggiula has been suspended in his four-year NHL career.
