TORONTO — Dylan Robinson of the Ottawa 67s has been given an eight-game suspension by the Ontario Hockey League for a check to the head.

Robinson was charged with a five-minute major and game misconduct for the incident that took place on Nov. 19 against the Wolves in Sudbury.

The OHL Player’s Safety Department assumed the main point of contact was the head of an unsuspecting opponent, and the hit happened after the whistle.

The 19-year-old winger had already been given a five-game ban to start the season following an October 23 incident in Kingston.

Robinson, who has six goals and four assists this season, will be eligible to return when the 67s host the Oshawa Generals on December 10.
