Dustin Brown suspended one game for kneeing Mikhail Sergachev - LA Kings Insider


Dustin Brown suspended one game for kneeing Mikhail Sergachev - LA Kings Insider

The NHL’s Department of Player Safety has suspended forward Dustin Brown one game for kneeing Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev at a Saturday game at Amalie Arena between the two teams.

Below is the video that Player Safety produced explaining its suspension.

The play happened at the 14:30 mark of the second period and Brown received a five-minute major and a game misconduct. Sergachev left for the remainder of the period but returned in the third. The Kings lost 4-3.

Brown is tied for third on the team with 16 goals and his plus-25 is tops on the Kings. Also, his 19:17 of ice-time per-night ranks second amongst Kings forwards.

This season, Brown previously had a hearing with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety for cross-checking Penguins defenseman Justin Schultz on Jan. 18 and was fined $10,000. 

He has been suspended once before in his career, in 2013 for two games for an elbow to the head of Jason Pominville.

The Kings were off Sunday but will practice Monday in Raleigh, N.C. Their game at the Carolina Hurricanes is Tuesday.
