The AHL today announced that Aleksi Saarela has been suspended for two games.

The suspension – the first of Saarela’s AHL career – comes as a result of a high-sticking incident in Saturday’s win over Rochester.

The forward, who leads Charlotte in goals this season, will miss Tuesday and Wednesday’s games against the Syracuse Crunch.
