Anthony Mantha has been suspended for Canada's quarterfinal matchup with Switzerland for a check to the head of Colin White during Tuesday's game against the United States, the IIHF announced Wednesday.

Mantha is tied for the tournament lead with seven goals and paces Canada with 12 points.

Canada finished atop Group A, earning a quarterfinal matchup with Group B's No. 4 seed. However, Switzerland has often been a thorn in Canada's side on the international stage: The Swiss upset the defending gold medalists at the 2006 Winter Olympics, took Canada to a shootout at the 2010 Olympics, and most recently, gave the Canadians a run for their money at the 2019 world juniors before ultimately losing 3-2 in round-robin action.

Mantha scored a career-high 25 goals in 67 games for the Detroit Red Wings this past season.
