Toronto Maple Leafs forward Zach Hyman has been suspended two games without pay for interference against Boston Bruins‘ defenceman Charlie McAvoy.

Hyman was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct following a high hit on McAvoy during the third period. The 26-year-old had a hearing with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety on Sunday to determine an appropriate punishment.

The winger has seven goals and eight assists in 30 games played this season.
