The NHL suspended forward Taylor Hall of the Edmonton Oilers two games without pay Friday for kneeing Minnesota's Cal Clutterbuck.

Hall received a five-minute major and game misconduct for kneeing Clutterbuck at 17:27 of the third period of the Wild's 3-1 victory Thursday night. Hall subsequently had a hearing with the National Hockey League Department of Player Safety on Friday.

As a result of the suspension, Hall will forfeit US$9,729.72 (U.S. currency) in salary. He will miss Edmonton's games Saturday against Phoenix and Monday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.
