You can't do what he did.

Spokane Chiefs forward Adam Helewka has been suspended for six games for his actions at the end of the Chiefs' Dec. 12 game against the Tri-City Americans.

In case you missed it, here's what happened:

The Chiefs were also fined $1,000 for the incident.

Six games is deserved. Helewka repeatedly punched Tri-City's Parker Wotherspoon as the official tried to separate the two. Wotherspoon was in no position to defend himself. The incident came after the final buzzer as well.

Plus, that blood, man.

This is a huge loss for the Chiefs, as Helewka has 29 points in 19 games. His 16 goals leads the team.

Helewka started the season with the AHL San Jose Barracuda before being returned to Spokane. His return helped the Chiefs immensely, as this feature in The Spokesman-Review shows.

Helewka will miss the rest of the 2015 calendar year and games against Everett, two against Portland, two against Seattle and one against Tri-City. He's set to return on Jan. 2 in Portland.

His first game back against Tri-City is Jan. 30 in Spokane, in case you're free that night.
