NEW YORK –- Buffalo Sabres forward Brad Boyes has been suspended for two preseason games for an illegal hit to the head of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joe Colborne during a preseason game on September 24, National Hockey League Senior Vice President of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan announced today.
 
The incident occurred at 1:46 of the first period.

Boyes will miss preseason games tonight at Columbus and Friday at Washington. He is eligible to return Oct. 4 vs. Adler in Manheim, Germany.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
