TORONTO (AP) — Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk has been suspended one game by the NHL for a spearing incident in Wednesday's game against Toronto. Tkachuk will sit as Calgary tries to end a three-game losing streak Thursday night in Montreal. He will also forfeit ,280.49 in salary.

"That's junior hockey stuff," Toronto coach Mike Babcock told reporters. "He'll learn over time but you gotta give Tkachuk credit -- he played a good game, he played hard. No reason for that stuff."

Tkachuk received a one-game suspension last month for tapping the leg of Detroit Red Wings defenseman Luke Witkowski as he headed to the locker room after a fight. The action ignited a brawl between the two teams, with Witkowski receiving a 10-game ban.

Tkachuk also received a two-game suspension in March 2016 for an elbow to the face of Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty.
