The AHL today announced a one-game suspension for Checkers defenseman Dennis Robertson.

The suspension comes as the result of a match penalty assessed to Robertson for a check to the head in Game 2 on Saturday.

The defenseman will miss Tuesday’s Game 3 in Hershey, as will Bears defenseman Tyler Lewington, who was also suspended for one game as a result of his actions in Game 2.

With Robertson suspended, the Checkers have the option of dressing one of their tryout options in Eric Williams, a Northeastern University product who has played two playoff games thus far, or Jesper Sellgren, a Hurricanes draft pick who played in the Swedish Hockey League this season but has yet to make his North American debut.
