Are you people blind or something? They show the play in slowmo at 3:22. He goes to give him a little slash, which happens 50 times a game in any league but the stick rides up the American stick. The initial point of contact is the USA guys stick just above his blade. From there the stick ricochets up high.

It is a penalty obviously but it was called as one. There was no injury and a suspension is absolutely outrageous, and for it to be 4 games is an embarrassment to the sport. The IIHF is a joke. Has been before this tourney and they continue to reinforce it.
