New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Colorado Avalanche forward Cody McLeod has
been suspended without pay for five games on Monday.
The discipline stems from his hit last week that resulted in Detroit
defenseman Niklas Kronwall being removed from the ice on a stretcher.
McLeod was assessed a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct in
last Thursday's game against the Red Wings. He served the first game of the
ban on Saturday while awaiting an in-person hearing.
