NEW YORK — The NHL has suspended Minnesota Wild defenseman Carson Soucy for one sport for charging Arizona Coyotes ahead Conor Garland.

The league’s Division of Participant Security introduced the suspension Wednesday. Soucy will forfeit $23,706.90 primarily based on his common annual wage, with the cash going to the Gamers’ Emergency Help Fund.

Soucy was given a five-minute main for charging Garland within the first interval of Tuesday night time’s Three-Zero win by Minnesota. Soucy left his ft and made contact with Garland’s head.

The Coyotes’ Lawson Crouse initiated a battle as quickly as Soucy left the penalty field. Crouse was given a penalty and sport misconduct for instigating.

Soucy will miss Thursday’s opener of a two-game sequence at Colorado.
