Chicago Blackhawks forward Daniel Carcillo was suspended seven games by the NHL for boarding Edmonton Oilers defenseman Tom Gilbert. Carcillo was given the large ban Wednesday, two nights after he sent Gilbert into the boards in the second period of the Blackhawks' 4-3 home victory over the Oilers. Carcillo was given a major penalty for boarding and was ejected from the game. Gilbert sustained an undisclosed lower-body injury and didn't play in Edmonton's 4-3 loss to Buffalo on Tuesday night. Carcillo, suspended in October for two games for an illegal check against Carolina defenseman Joni Pitkanen, was treated as a repeat offender. He will lose $66,158 in salary after forfeiting $8,378 for the earlier ban. He will be eligible to return Jan. 18 when the Blackhawks host Buffalo.
