The NHL suspended Buffalo Sabres goaltender Aaron Dell three games for interference on Ottawa Senators forward Drake Batherson during Tuesday's contest, the league's Department of Player Safety announced.

Here's a look at the play that sent Batherson crashing into the boards:

Senators head coach DJ Smith said postgame that Batherson is expected to be sidelined long term with an ankle injury. The ailment is believed to be a high-ankle sprain, and the club will have a better recovery timeline when the swelling goes down, according to Postmedia's Bruce Garrioch.

Batherson, who leads Ottawa with 34 points, was slated to attend his first All-Star Game next week but was ruled out due to the injury. Teammate Brady Tkachuk is replacing him.
