Kings’ Dustin Brown banned for elbow
Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown was suspended for two games without pay by the NHL on Wednesday for elbowing Minnesota forward Jason Pominville on Tuesday night.
No penalty was assessed on second-period hit to the head in the Kings’ 2-1 loss at Minnesota. Brown hit Pominville in the jaw, knocking him on his back.
The suspension will cost Brown $34,324. He will miss the final two regular-season games.
