Report: NHL suspends Kings captain Dustin Brown two games

Publish date:

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.
