NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NHL has suspended Washington Capitals defenceman Dmitry Orlov for two games for boarding Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn.

Orlov, who has no history of fines and suspensions in the NHL, will lose US$7,076.92 in salary.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
