NEW YORK — The NHL has suspended Edmonton Oilers forward Evander Kane for Game 4 of the NHL Western Conference final for a hit from behind that injured Colorado Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri.

The incident occurred just over a minute into the first period of Game 3 on Saturday.

Kadri didn't return to the game after Kane sent him crashing left arm-first into the boards. The hit was reviewed and called a major penalty, though Kane avoided a game misconduct.

Avalanche coach Jared Bednar says Kadri will be out for the remainder of the conference final, and possibly longer.

Colorado won the game 4-2 to take a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 4 is Monday in Edmonton.
