Report: NHL suspends Kings captain Dustin Brown two games

Wednesday April 24th, 2013

The NHL has suspended Kings captain Dustin Brown two games for his hit on the Wild's Jason Pominville,  according to Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times.

The suspension followed a telephone hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety. Brown elbowed Pominville in the face along the boards Tuesday night. Pominville hit the ice hard and stayed down for a few moments before leaving the game appearing woozy. No penalty was called on the play.

Brown will miss Wednesday night's game at Detroit and the regular-season finale Saturday against the Sharks.
