Ference was sanctioned for a hit-from-behind on New York Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh during overtime of a 3-2 Rangers victory Saturday.
Ference was given a 5-minute boarding penalty and a game misconduct on the play, which resulted in a Marian Gaborik goal and a New York win.
The league said Ference will lose $36,486 in salary and won't be eligible to return until Feb. 2.
