Department of Player Safety hands Mark Scheifele four game suspension for hit on Evans

Number 55 receives his punishment from the league.

Earlier this morning we learned that Jets centre Mark Scheifele would have a phone hearing with the Department of Player Safety for his charge on the Habs Jake Evans late in game 1.

The ref tossed Scheifele for the game handing him a five minute major and a game misconduct.
