Zeiler Suspended, Will Sit Out Three Games

TORONTO — On November 24, the National Hockey League suspended Los Angeles Kings winger John Zeiler for three games without pay as a result of a boarding incident that took place on November 22 against the Colorado Avalanche at Staples Center (4-3 shootout win for the Avalanche).

Zeiler was assessed a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct for hitting Colorado defenseman Adam Foote at 6:51 of the second period.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Zeiler will forfeit $8,770.17. The money goes to the Players Emergency Assistance Fund.

Zeiler will miss Tuesday’s game at Calgary, November 26 at Edmonton and November 29 against Chicago.

He will be eligible to return December 1 against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Staples Center.
