The Ontario Hockey League has reduced Windsor Spitfires forward Josh Ho-Sang's 15-game suspension to six games.

The suspension will take effect at the start of the 2014-15 season.

Ho-Sang received the initial ban on April 7 for hitting London Knights defenceman Zach Bell from behind in a playoff game.

The league says it made the decision to reduce the suspension after "further consideration of the incident," which took place in the second period of Game 4 of the Western Conference quarter-final.

Ho-Sang tripped Bell from behind, and the defenceman crashed into the boards. He was taken off the ice on a stretcher and suffered a broken leg. Ho-Sang received a minor penalty for the hit.

The 18-year-old Ho-Sang is considered a potential first-round pick in the upcoming NHL draft.
