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.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
