Canadiens’ Domi suspended for preseason for punching Ekblad

Max Domi, who was the return from Arizona in the Alex Galchenyuk deal earlier this summer, showed his quick hands in the Habs' preseason contest against the Panthers on Wednesday, though likely not in the way the team was hoping for in literally the most meaningless game of the 2018-19 campaign. With the Florida star showing no interest to drop the gloves, Domi punched him in the face twice with two lefts, but still Ekblad didn't respond. "You respect your opponents and if your opponent doesn't want to engage in a fight, there's no reason to drop your glove and punch him square in the face". Carey Price played the first half of the game, stopping 20 of 22 shots. When Domi engaged him and punched him with.

The Panthers dressed several of their National Hockey League regulars, including Aleksander Barkov, Mike Hoffman, Jonathan Huberdeau and Aaron Ekblad.

Domi was given the match penalty for "attempt to/deliberate injury" and a minor penalty for roughing after punching Ekblad about a minute into the third period of the Panthers' 5-2 win.

The 29-year-old Russian added his second at 11:07, on the power play, shortly after a shot from Mike Hoffman was blocked in front of goal.

Scientists say the arachnids are merely enjoying the handsome weather and availability of food, taking the opportunity to "party". The spiders are likely from the genus Tetragnatha which are commonly known as stretch spiders due to their elongated bodies.

After a scoreless second, McCann made it 3-1 at 10:57 of the third period after driving hard to the net and cashing in his own rebound. The Canadiens were hoping to get him some exhibition reps as their first-line center (which isn't his natural position) but now they'll be forced to proceed and finish the preseason without him.

Still, it's not a great first impression made by Domi, who arrived in Montreal via trade this offseason.

The news comes as a huge relief for the Panthers and their fans as Ekblad has a history of concussions.
