Chicago Blackhawks forward Dan Carcillo has been suspended indefinitely pending a hearing with the Department of Player Safety regarding his hit on Edmonton's Tom Gilbert Monday night.

The incident in question occurred during the second period when Carcillo and Gilbert were chasing a puck into the Oilers' zone and Carcillo checked Gilbert into the boards. Gilbert was injured on the play and is expected to miss Tuesday night's game against Buffalo with a lower-body injury. Carcillo also appeared to be hurt on the play.

Carcillo was assessed a five-minute boarding penalty and a game misconduct for the hit. The Oilers would score twice on the ensuing power play en route to a 4-3 win.
