When the Minnesota Wild’s Kevin Fiala decided it was a good idea to throw Los Angeles Kings’ Matt Roy into the boards from behind, we knew it wasn’t going to end well for anyone. Turns out we hit the nail on the head as Fiala has been suspended by the league for three games.
Kevin Fiala forfeits $77,586.21 in salary for his three-game suspension.

The 24-year-old Fiala has appeared in eight games so far this season, recording three goals. While he’s never been considered a dirty player, this was a gutless hit.
