TORONTO -- Carolina Hurricanes forward Scott Walker was suspended for one game without pay Thursday for head-butting Ottawa's Mike Fisher during a fight.

Walker was assessed a match penalty for attempt to injure and a major penalty for fighting in the second period of Carolina's 6-0 loss to Ottawa on Wednesday night.

Walker will miss Friday night's game against Calgary. He will forfeit $13,368.98, with the money going to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
