AHL Suspends Dennis Robertson For One Game

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.

Director of Communications Nicholas Niedzielski joined the Checkers in the summer of 2014. A Texas native, he previously worked for the AHL's Texas Stars.
