The NHL has handed down its ruling on Brendan Lemieux, suspending him for the first two games of the play-in round.

Lemieux was suspended for his hit on Joonas Donskoi. This was a very dirty hit, and honestly two games is a little light.

This creates an opening in the bottom-six for someone like Vitali Kravtsov to potentially impress and steal a spot.
