TORONTO (AP) -Toronto Maple Leafs left-winger Ryan Hollweg received an automatic three-game suspension by the NHL on Wednesday following his fourth game misconduct.
Hollweg got a game misconduct for a boarding penalty in Monday's 5-4 shootout loss to the St. Louis Blues. It was Hollweg's fourth game misconduct within 41 games.
If Hollweg gets another game misconduct for boarding, hitting from behind or certain stick infractions over the next 41 games, he will automatically get a four-game suspension.
Hollweg is eligible to return Oct. 23 against the Boston Bruins. He'll forfeit $18,750 in salary.
