NEW YORK (AP) — Phoenix Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal has been suspended one game for a hit on Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Brown.

The NHL announced the penalty Wednesday, a day after Hanzal was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct for boarding at 11:01 of the third period in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals series.

Hanzal will miss Game 3 on Thursday night in Los Angeles. The Kings lead the series 2-0.
