The NHL on Wednesday suspended New York Islanders forward Colin McDonald for two games after a boarding incident involving Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ben Lovejoy on Tuesday.
In the Islanders' 4-1 win at the Consol Energy Center, McDonald was issued a boarding penalty and a game misconduct for his hit on Lovejoy at the 18:54 mark of the second period. The penalty was served by Keith Aucoin.
Under the terms of the new collective bargaining agreement, McDonald will lose $7,567.56 in salary. The funds will be sent to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
McDonald, a right wing, has two points and 19 minutes in penalties for the Islanders, who are off to a 3-2-1 start. New York will take on the New Jersey Devils in Newark on Thursday night.

It's not often when the team that is supposedly the Stanley Cup contender is getting booed at home loudly and with a lot of frequency in only the second home game of the season.
But that's exactly what happened at the Consol Mausoleum last night, as the "inferior" New York Islanders skated circles around the lackadaisical Penguins, 4-1.
That makes 3 losses out...
