Austin Watson has been suspended two games for boarding Avalanche forward Dominic Toninato.
Here’s the explanation from NHL Department of Player Safety:
The DOPS got this one right. Watson’s hit was very dangerous and Toninato could have been seriously hurt. Thankfully, he wasn’t. Also, in the video above, it’s clear that Watson admitted to DOPS that he had time to readjust his course, but didn’t.
