St. Louis Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist has been suspended one game for his hit on Boston Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Sundqvist, who was assessed a two-minute minor for boarding on the play, has proven to be an integral depth forward for the Blues. Despite playing primarily on the fourth line of late, the 6-foot-3 center has four goals and five assists in 21 postseason contests.

Grzelcyk left the game and did not return. He did not travel with the team to St. Louis on Thursday, per head coach Bruce Cassidy. The speedy, puck-moving blue-liner has seven points in 19 postseason games. He'll likely be replaced in the lineup by either John Moore or Steven Kampfer.
