NEW YORK -- The NHL has suspended Philadelphia Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk four games for charging Ottawa defenseman Mike Lundin.

Lundin suffered a concussion.

The play happened Saturday midway through the first period of the Flyers' 2-1 win. Zolnierczyk launched himself into Lundin as the Ottawa forward was cutting into the Flyers' zone.

Zolnierczyk received a major penalty for charging and a game misconduct on the play. He will be fined just under $13,000.
