The NHL suspended Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk four games Sunday for charging Ottawa defenceman Mike Lundin.

The incident happened Saturday midway through the first period of the Senators 2-1 loss in Philadelphia. Zolnierczyk launched himself into Lundin as the Ottawa forward was cutting into the Flyers' zone.

Lundin has since been diagnosed with a concussion, adding to the Senators' growing list of injured players.

Zolnierczyk, who was assessed a major penalty for charging and game misconduct on the play, will forfeit US$12,972.96 in salary.

The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
