Toronto - Anaheim Ducks forward Bobby Ryan was suspended two games by the National Hockey League on Saturday.

Ryan was docked for stomping on the skate of Nashville Predators defenseman Jonathon Blum late in Anaheim's 5-3 victory on Friday in Game 2 of its Western quarterfinal.

"The actions by Ryan were both reckless and dangerous," said NHL discipline czar Colin Campbell. "While it was fortunate there was no injury to Blum on the play, the act of using your skate in this manner is unacceptable.

The 24-year-old New Jersey native will miss Games 3 and 4 of the series as it shifts back to Nashville on Sunday and Wednesday.
