Bruins’ Jeremy Lauzon handed 2-game suspension for check to head

Boston defenceman Jeremy Lauzon was suspended on Sunday for two games, without pay, following a match penalty he received Saturday in the Bruins’ 4-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

He was penalized for an illegal check to the head of Coyotes forward Derek Stepan late in the first period. Stepan left the game but later returned.

The NHL department of player safety held a hearing Sunday morning before announcing the ruling.

Lauzon, 22, has played in seven games with the Bruins this season. He has one goal and a plus-2 rating.

The Bruins meet the Red Wings in Detroit on Sunday afternoon and return home to host Montreal on Wednesday.
