NEW YORK, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- New York Rangers center Eric Lindros was suspended one game by the NHL Saturday for catching Montreal Canadiens defenseman Stephane Quintal with a high stick in a game Friday night.

The incident occurred with 4:19 to go in the third period of New York's 4-1 loss. Lindros received a minor penalty for high-sticking after connecting with the former Ranger during a scramble in front of the Canadiens' net.

Based on his $2.7 million salary, Lindros will forfeit $13,333. He sat out Saturday night's game at Pittsburgh.
