Jets’ Lowry Suspended 2 Games for Boarding Flames’ Kylington

NEW YORK — The NHL has suspended Winnipeg Jets forward Adam Lowry for two games for boarding Calgary Flames defenceman Oliver Kylington.

The incident occurred with two seconds left in the second period of Winnipeg’s 2-1 overtime win over Calgary in Saturday’s outdoor game at Regina’s Mosiac Stadium. Lowry hit Kylington from behind as the defenceman tangled with another Jets player behind the Calgary goal.

Lowry was assessed a minor penalty for boarding on the play.

The Jets forward is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and will forfeit around US$71,000 in salary. He will be eligible to return when Winnipeg visits the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday.

Lowry has no points in 12 games this season.
