TORONTO (AP) -Maple Leafs left wing Ryan Hollweg received an automatic two-game suspension Monday after collecting his third boarding or checking from behind major in a 41-game span.
The third penalty came in last Wednesday's 7-3 preseason loss at St. Louis, when Hollweg was assessed a boarding major and game misconduct.
Last season with the New York Rangers, Hollweg received checking from behind majors and game misconducts on Jan. 5 against Edmonton and Feb. 3 against Montreal.
Hollweg will miss Toronto's season-opener Thursday at Detroit and Saturday's home-opener against Montreal. He also forfeits $5,510.76 in salary, which goes to the players' emergency assistance fund.
