Kings captain Dustin Brown suspended 2 games for Wild's elbowing Jason Pominville

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown was suspended for two games without pay by the NHL on Wednesday for elbowing Minnesota forward Jason Pominville on Tuesday night.

No penalty was assessed on second-period hit to the head in the Kings' 2-1 loss at Minnesota. Brown hit Pominville in the jaw, knocking him on his back.

The suspension will cost Brown $34,324. He will miss the final two regular-season games.

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
