Columbus forward Derek MacKenzie suspended 3 games for boarding Phoenix's Oliver Ekman-Larsson

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Columbus Blue Jackets forward Derek MacKenzie was suspended for three games without pay by the NHL for Friday for boarding Phoenix defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

No penalty was assessed for the hit in the first period of Columbus' 2-0 road victory. Ekman-Larsson didn't return to the game and missed practice Friday. The Coyotes said only that he had an upper-body injury.

The suspension will cost MacKenzie $15,385.
