Manitoba Moose forward Darren Kramer will have to serve a suspension next season before he can play in a game.

The American Hockey League issued Kramer a three game suspension on Monday for his actions in the Moose final regular season game last Friday. Since the Moose season is already over Kramer will serve his suspension the next time he’s on an active AHL roster.
