Anthony Stolarz, the Flyers' top goaltending prospect, was suspended eight games by the Ontario Hockey League for a high sticking infraction in Tuesday's playoff game between the London Knights and Windsor Spitfires.

Stolarz slashed Josh Ho-Sang of the Spitfires in the back of the head after Stolarz had been poked in his pads.

Stolarz, 20, is 3-0 in the OHL playoffs and went 25-5-1 during the regular season. He had a 2.52 goals against average and .926 save percentage.

If the Knights are eliminated from the playoffs, Stolarz's suspension could carry into the Memorial Cup, the Canadian major junior national title. In a statement, the OHL said that if Stolarz's suspension does linger into the Memorial Cup it will be reviewed at that time.
