Senators Borowiecki suspended 3 games for illegal head check
The hit happened early in the first period of the Senators-Golden Knights game Sunday in Las Vegas. Borowiecki was whistled for a major penalty for charging, as well as a game misconduct.
Under terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, Borowiecki is considered a repeat offender. He will forfeit nearly $44,000 for the three-game suspension. The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
