NEW YORK -- San Jose defender Aaron Pitchkolan was suspended one game and fined $250 for "egregious and reckless conduct" a week ago in a game against the New York Red Bulls.

The league reviewed the game and said that Pitchkolan made contact with his foot to the head of New York's Macoumba Kandji.

Pitchkolan will miss San Jose's game against Houston on May 23.
