WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov has been suspended for two games for boarding Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn.
The suspension was announced on Monday. It will cost Orlov $7,076.92 in salary.
Orlov launched into Scheen during the third period on Sunday and was assessed a major penalty. The infraction helped the Flyers rally from a 4-2 deficit for a 5-4 overtime win.
After the suspension was announced, the Capitals recalled defenseman Jack Hillen from Hershey of the AHL. Hillen had been with Hershey for a conditioning stint after rehabbing a fracture in his right leg.
