The American Hockey League today announced that Hershey Bears forward Beck Malenstyn has been suspended for three (3) games as a consequence of an elbowing incident in a game at Lehigh Valley on Dec. 6.

Thje incident occurred early in the third period with the Bears leading 2-1. Malenstyn would initiate contact with his back to the Phantoms player, Mark Friedman. Friedman would lay on the ice for a minute before being helped to the room. He did not return to the game.

Malenstyn will miss Hershey’s games tonight (Dec. 8) vs. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Dec. 14 vs. Bridgeport and Dec. 15 vs. Lehigh Valley.

In related news, Malenstyn left last night’s game against Lehigh Valley with a minute to go in regulation after suffering a hard hit and fall along the boards. He would not return to the game. It’s unclear as to his playing status regarding a potential injury, however, Bears Radio provided an update prior to Sunday night’s game.
