Columbus Blue Jackets forward Derek MacKenzie was suspended three games for his hit on defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson of the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday.

Ekman-Larsson left the game with an upper-body injury after MacKenzie drove him into the boards midway through the first period, prompting Coyotes defenceman Keith Yandle to engage MacKenzie in a fight.

No penalty was called on the play and Coyotes head coach Dave Tippett said Ekman-Larsson was kept out of the game as a precaution.
