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.

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

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
