Maple Leafs winger Ryan Hollweg receives automatic two-game suspension

TORONTO - Toronto Maple Leafs forward Ryan Hollweg received an automatic two-game suspension Monday after collecting his third boarding or checking from behind major in a 41-game span.

The third penalty came in last Wednesday's 7-3 pre-season loss at St. Louis, when he was assessed a boarding major and game misconduct.

Last season with the New York Rangers, Hollweg received checking from behind majors and game misconducts on Jan. 5 versus Edmonton and Feb. 3 against Montreal.

Hollweg will miss Toronto's season-opener Thursday at Detroit and Saturday's home-opener versus Montreal.

He also forfeits US$5,510.76 in salary, which goes to the players' emergency assistance fund.
