LA forward Zeiler suspended three games
The National Hockey League suspended Los Angeles Kings forward John Zeiler for three games Monday for action during Saturday's loss to Colorado.
Zeiler, 26, was assessed a major penalty for boarding and game misconduct for hitting Avalanche defenseman Adam Foote at the 6:51 mark of the second period.
I saw Foote on the ground and I kind of knew it wasn't a clean hit because he was hit from behind, Avs forward Ian Laperriere said after the game.
Those hits have to stop before someone gets hurt or even killed.
Zeiler has one goal and three assists in 61 career games with the Kings.
