NEW YORK - St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre has been suspended for five games, without pay, for boarding San Jose Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle during NHL Game No. 89 in St. Louis on Tuesday, October 15, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and, based on his average annual salary, Lapierre will forfeit $28,205.15. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

The incident occurred at 5:22 of the first period. Lapierre was assessed a major penalty for checking from behind and a game misconduct.

Lapierre already has served one game of this suspension while awaiting an in-person hearing that was convened this afternoon.
