The NHL have suspended Zack Kassian for three games for his boarding penalty on Stars defenseman Brenden Dillon.

Kassian tracked Dillon down through the neutral zone, but when Dillon dumped the puck in and turned to go for a change, Kassian drove him into the boards from behind. He was assessed a boarding major and a game misconduct on the play. Kassian is eligible to return to the Canucks lineup next Friday in Winnipeg.

Kassian will be a healthy scratch today.

Kassian took a bad penalty that led to a Rangers power-play goal in yesterday's 5-2 loss. He has just one goal and a minus-5 rating in his last eight games, obviously coach Tortorella wants to see more discipline and production out of this edgy forward. Zac Dalpe will dress in his place.
