Ottawa Senators centre Jean-Gabriel Pageau has been suspended one game by the NHL Department of Player Safety for boarding Vancouver Canucks defenceman Ashton Sautner.

Pageau received a two-minute minor penalty for boarding against Sautner in the second period of the Senators' 7-4 loss on Wednesday. As Sautner attempted to clear the puck for his own zone along the side boards, Pageau hit him into the glass, dropping the Canucks forward to the ice.

Pageau, 26, has three goals and 10 points in 31 games this season. He has never been suspended in his NHL career.

Sautner, 24, has one assist in 14 games this season.

The Senators will face the Flames in Calgary on Thursday night.
