The NHL has suspended Columbus Blue Jackets forward Blake Comeau two games without pay for hitting Detroit defenseman Brendan Smith from behind during a game on Tuesday.
Comeau was assessed a minor penalty for boarding in the first period. The suspension will cost him more than 10 thousand dollars. And the Dallas Stars say forward Rich Peverley will miss the rest of the season after he had a cardiac event during Monday's nights game against the Jackets. He will undergo a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat diagnosed in training camp.
