Wild’s Fiala Suspended 3 Games for Boarding Kings’ Roy
NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL has suspended Minnesota Wild forward Kevin Fiala for three games without pay for boarding Los Angeles Kings defenseman Matt Roy.
The players were chasing a loose puck into the corner in the second period Thursday night when Fiala shoved Roy from behind, sending him face-first into the boards.
Roy was down for several minutes before being helped off the ice and did not return. Fiala was assessed a five-minute major and game misconduct. He’ll forfeit $77,586.
