Yesterday the NHL announced that they had officially suspended New York Islanders, forward Casey Cizikas for 1-game for boarding Brendan Smith.

The hit occurred in the 3rd period of a game Friday night. Smith attempted to corral a loose puck in a corner when he was hit from behind by Cizikas. The hit sent Smith's helmet hard into the glass and Cizikas was given a minor penalty on the play for boarding.


Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, Cizikas will forfeit $12,500 that will go to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
