Jets’ Lowry suspended 2 games for boarding Flames’ Kylington

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 $71,000 US in salary. Lowry was also suspended two games last March for a high stick on Nashville forward Filip Forsberg.
