RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Carolina Hurricanes forward Kevin Westgarth has been suspended for two games without pay by the NHL for a boarding hit.

The league's department of player safety announced Westgarth's suspension Tuesday.

Westgarth was suspended for his hit on Ottawa defenseman Mark Boroweicki at 7:55 of the first period of Sunday's game.

Boroweicki was injured and did not return. Westgarth received a 2-minute boarding penalty.

The league says Westgarth will forfeit $7,435.90 and the money will go to the players' emergency assistance fund.
