Calgary Flames forward Martin Pospisil was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for elbowing Winnipeg Jets defenseman Josh Morrissey on Thursday.

Pospisil caught Morrissey high with less than a minute remaining in the second period.

Morrissey didn't miss any time, finishing the contest with 27:07 of ice time. The Jets won 5-2 to clinch their sixth playoff berth in seven seasons and officially eliminate the Flames from postseason contention.

Pospisil had eight goals, 20 points, and 82 penalty minutes in 55 games coming into Thursday's contest.

The 24-year-old rookie was suspended three games in March for boarding Seattle Kraken defenseman Vince Dunn.
