Rangers rookie Carl Hagelin was suspended three games by the NHL for hitting Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson up high with an elbow in Game 2 Saturday night.

NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan called the hit, which occurred during the second period during the Senators' overtime victory over the Rangers at Madison Square Garden, "a reckless strike to the side of Alfredsson's head."

Also suspended Sunday was Senators defenseman Matt Carkner who was banned one game for going after Rangers center Brian Boyle in the first period of Game 2.
