The incident happened Saturday midway through the first period of the Senators 2-1 loss in Philadelphia. Zolnierczyk launched himself into Lundin as the Ottawa forward was cutting into the Flyers' zone.
Lundin has since been diagnosed with a concussion, adding to the Senators' growing list of injured players.
Zolnierczyk, who was assessed a major penalty for charging and game misconduct on the play, will forfeit US$12,972.96 in salary.
The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
