NHL hands St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre a 5-game ban for boarding

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The National Hockey League handed St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre a five-game suspension Friday for boarding San Jose Sharks defenceman Dan Boyle.

The incident occurred at 5:22 of the first period on Tuesday night. Lapierre was assessed a major penalty for checking from behind and a game misconduct.

Lapierre served one game of the suspension while awaiting Friday afternoon's in-person hearing.

He will forfeit US$28,205.15 in salary.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
