Adam Lowry, Ryan Garbutt suspended for separate incidents

The NHL handed out a pair of suspensions on Thursday.

Dallas Stars forward Ryan Garbutt is gone for two games for his knee on Edmonton Oilers winger Taylor Hall, while Winnipeg Jets forward Adam Lowry will miss one game for boarding Buffalo Sabres winger Patrick Kaleta.

The incident involving Garbutt and Hall occurred at 12:17 of the third period on Tuesday night. Hall was carrying the puck at centre ice when Garbutt stuck out his left leg, sending the Oilers forward to the ice. 

Hall, who suffered an MCL sprain recently, stayed in the game.

The Stars skated to a 3-2 victory over the Oilers.

Another consideration for Garbutt’s two-game ban was the fact he’s a repeat offender.

Garbutt was assessed a minor penalty for tripping. 

He forfeits $43,902.44 US for missing the next two games. 

Lowry drove Kaleta into the boards in the second period during the Jets’ 2-1 win over Buffalo on Wednesday night.

He was assessed a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.

Lowry will forfeit $4,453.41 in salary.
