Toronto Maple Leafs forward Carter Ashton handed two-game ban for boarding

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Toronto Maple Leafs forward Carter Ashton was suspended for two games by the NHL on Friday for boarding Calgary Flames forward Derek Smith during a game earlier in the week.

Ashton was given a minor penalty on the play, which occurred late in the second period of Toronto's 4-2 win at Calgary on Wednesday night.

Smith crashed heavily into the boards but was not injured.

Ashton, a 22-year-old Winnipeg native, will forfeit US$8,615.38 in salary. He has one assist and 12 penalty minutes in 10 games this season.
