The NHL has suspended New York Islanders right wing Colin McDonald two games for boarding Pittsburgh’s Ben Lovejoy during New York’s 4-1 win on Wednesday night.
The incident occurred at 18:54 of the second period, and McDonald received a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.
Based on his average annual salary, McDonald will forfeit $7,567.56 to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
He’ll sit out the Isles’ next two games — a home-and-away series with New Jersey on Jan. 31 and Feb. 3 — and will be eligible for return on Feb. 5, when New York hosts (you guessed it!) the Pittsburgh Penguins.
