The NHL is suspending Boston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy for Game One of the Eastern Conference finals against Carolina.
The ban stems from an illegal check McAvoy put on Columbus Blue Jackets forward Josh Anderson in Boston’s series-clinching win on Monday.
McAvoy has one goal and five assists in 13 playoff games for the B’s. Game One is on Thursday.
