Carcillo to be suspended for 6th time

Chicago forward Daniel Carcillo will have a hearing in connection with a hit in Monday night's game on Edmonton defenceman Tom Gilbert, according to

Carcillo is suspended indefinitely and will find out the specific amount of time he will be out after a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety.

Carcillo received a five minute penalty for boarding in the second period of the contest after the hit on Gilbert, with the Oilers scoring twice on the ensuing power play en route to a 4-3 victory.

According to reports out of Chicago, Carcillo hurt his knee during the game and could be out for a period of time. Any suspension would be served when he comes back.

Carcillo, who turns 27 later this month, was signed as a free agent by the Blackhawks prior to this season.

The forward has been suspended five previous times by the NHL since entering the league in 2006-07, including a two-game penalty earlier this season for a hit on Carolina's Joni Pitkanen.
