ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The NHL has suspended Minnesota Wild center Warren Peters for one game after he cross-checked an opponent in the head.

The penalty was imposed Sunday. On Saturday night, Peters hit David Backes late in a 4-0 loss at St. Louis. Peters was given a game misconduct.

Backes left the ice and did not return for the final 3½ minutes, although he was fine after the game.

Peters said he did not mean to hit Backes in the head. But Peters said he needed to be more responsible with his stick.

Minnesota recalled Chad Rau to take Peters’ spot on the roster for Sunday’s game against Boston.
