St. Louis Blues forward Pavel Buchnevich was suspended two games for headbutting Arizona Coyotes forward Lawson Crouse during Monday's contest, the NHL Department of Player Safety announced.

The incident occurred after Buchnevich elbowed Coyotes forward Andrew Ladd up high late in the first period. Crouse went after Buchnevich in retaliation, eventually leading to Buchnevich's headbutt and match penalty.

Here's a closer look at the headbutt:

Buchnevich, one of the Blues' biggest offseason additions, was acquired in a trade with the New York Rangers. He scored his first goal with the club earlier in the game.
