NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL on Wednesday suspended New York Islanders forward Colin McDonald for two games after a boarding incident involving Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ben Lovejoy on Tuesday.

In the Islanders' 4-1 win at the Consol Energy Center, McDonald was issued a boarding penalty and a game misconduct for his hit on Lovejoy at the 18:54 mark of the second period. The penalty was served by Keith Aucoin.

Under the terms of the new collective bargaining agreement, McDonald will lose $7,567.56 in salary. The funds will be sent to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

McDonald, a right wing, has two points and 19 minutes in penalties for the Islanders, who are off to a 3-2-1 start. New York will take on the New Jersey Devils in Newark on Thursday night.
