I'm guessing they can waive him.

Sending him down off the roster may be the issue -but I think there's precedent for sending down a player to the AHL on suspension (Downey). The AHL can choose to honor the NHL suspension and suspend him for an equal amount of AHL games, but the NHL owner still forfeits the NHL salary equivalent of games regardless if the player is in the AHL or the NHL I believe.
