The NHL suspended Montreal Canadiens forward Ryan White for five games without pay Wednesday for a check to the head of Philadelphia defenseman Kent Huskins.

White was assessed a match penalty for the check in the first period of Montreal's 7-3 loss to the Flyers on Monday night. The Flyers said Huskins sustained a concussion.
