The NHL’s Department of Player Safety announced on Thursday evening that Calgary Flames forward Blake Coleman has been suspended one preseason game and one regular season game for boarding Winnipeg’s Jansen Harkins on Wednesday night.

The incident occurred in the second period and resulted in Coleman being assessed a minor penalty for boarding.

By being suspended for one regular season game he will lose $24,000 in salary.

Coleman signed a long-term contract with the Flames in free agency this offseason and was their biggest addition of the offseason.

He spent the past year-and-a-half with the Tampa Bay Lightning helping the team win back-to-back Stanley Cups as a key cog on their third line. The Flames are hoping his two-way play can help elevate them back to the playoffs.
