Sochi, Russia (SportsNetwork.com) - Slovenia's Sabahudin Kovacevic was given a one-game suspension on Sunday for an elbow delivered in a victory over Slovakia.

The Olympic men's tournament disciplinary panel issued the ban one day after Kovacevic hit Slovakia's Tomas Kopecky in the head and neck area during a 3-1 triumph. Kopecky was forced to leave the game and did not return.

Kovacevic, who logged nearly 23 minutes of ice time on Saturday, will miss Slovenia's game on Sunday against the United States.
