Toronto Maple Leafs defender Zach Hyman was suspended by NHL on Sunday because of interference after his attack on Boston Bruins defender Charlie McAvoy last night.
Hyman had an audience with the security department of the NHL players on Sunday and they announced the suspension later that night.
Hyman received significant interference in the Toronto 6-3 loss in Boston on Saturday night.
See highlights of Toronto's clash with Boston:
McAvoy had cleared the back puck from his own goal line and was watching the game unfold when Hyman hit him, knocking out Bruins defender to the ice.
McAvoy had already lost 20 games this season with a concussion.
The suspension is Hyman's first in his 210-game career.
Hyman will lose $ 24,193.54. The money goes to the Players Emergency Assistance Fund.
