Hawks' Boynton suspended 1 regular season game
TORONTO -- Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Nick Boynton has been suspended for one game for making a throat slashing gesture towards Tampa Bay Lightning player Blair Jones during NHL pre-season game #11 on Wednesday, Sept. 22.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Boynton will forfeit $2,688.17. The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

The incident occurred at 13:04 of the second period. He was assessed a game misconduct (Rule 75.5) on the play.

Boynton will miss the Blackhawks' season opener at Colorado on October 7.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
