Nedved had three facial cuts after being hit by Lindros' stick during Philadelphia's 3-1 victory Saturday. Lindros was given a double-minor penalty.
"Mr. Lindros used his stick in a careless manner and an injury to Mr. Nedved resulted," Colin Campbell, NHL senior vice president and director of hockey operations, said.
The suspension will cost Lindros $86,458.33 in salary
