RALEIGH, N.C. - Carolina Hurricanes forward Kevin Westgarth has been suspended for two games without pay by the NHL for a boarding hit.

The league's department of player safety announced Westgarth's suspension Tuesday.

Westgarth was suspended for his hit on Ottawa defenceman Mark Boroweicki at 7:55 of the first period of Sunday's game.

The league says Westgarth will forfeit $7,435.90 and the money will go to the players' emergency assistance fund.

Quote of the Day

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
