The NHL announced on Thanksgiving that they have suspended Jets forward Adam Lowry one game for his hit from behind on Patrick Kaleta. Lowry received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit as well.

Kaleta left the game, but returned in the third period after getting stitched up. Combined with Lowry not being a repeat offender, the length of the suspension is not surprising.
