Tampa Bay Lightning defenceman Pavel Kubina has been suspended three games for his hit to the head of Chicago Blackhawks forward David Bolland in Wednesday night's game.

Bolland was struck in the back of the head in the first period, when Kubina's elbow made contact as he was clearing a lose puck in the neutral zone. Bolland did not return to the game and the team called it an upper-body injury following the contest.

There was no infraction called on the play and head coach Joel Quenneville said Bolland would be re-evaluated on Thursday.

Kubina will forfeit $60,096.76 and won't be eligible to return until March 17 at Montreal.

Michael Frolik moved to centre in Bolland's absence, as the Blackhawks battled back to defeat the Lightning, 4-3.
