Brad Marchand was diagnosed with a mild concussion on Thursday, and Anton Volchenkov, the player who delivered the hit on Wednesday night, felt the repercussions of his actions.

The Devils defenseman was suspended for four games, as NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan said Volchenkov made "reckless elbow contact" with the side of Marchand's head.

Volchenkov has a history of physical play. On Feb. 8, 2011, he elbowed Carolina's Zach Boychuk in the head, and was suspended for three games. However, Volchenkov is not technically considered a repeat offender under the current rules for supplemental discipline.

Volchenkov's hit on Marchand took place in the second period of the Bruins' 5-4 win. Johnny Boychuk sent the puck into the New Jersey zone around the boards. Marchand and Volchenkov raced for the puck, and as Marchand approached, Volchenkov extended his left elbow, which thudded into the left wing's head. A wobbly Marchand hit the deck and needed help retreating to the dressing room. He did not return.

Marchand is the Bruins' leading scorer with 16 goals and 17 assists for 33 points. Marchand is averaging 17:10 of ice time, including 1:55 on the power play and 1:11 on the penalty kill. Marchand is one of the team's most important all-around forwards.

It is unknown when Marchand will return. Shawn Thornton missed two games earlier this season after he suffered a mild concussion in a fight with Buffalo's John Scott.
