New York Islanders forward Pascal Morency has been suspended indefinitely pending a hearing early next week.

Morency left the Islanders' bench and charged Flames defenceman Dion Phaneuf in the second period of Thurday night's 5-4 Flames win, after Phaneuf leveled Islanders' forward Kyle Okposo.

Morency was issued a game misconduct after the small fracas on the ice.

Okposo, who was taken off the ice on a strecher,  is said to have a mild concussion, but no other physical damage from the check.
