Montreal’s Max Domi was suspended for the remainder of the preseason for sucker punching Florida’s Aaron Ekblad. On Friday the defenseman showed off the aftermath of Domi’s sucker punch. As you can see it left him with a broken nose and two black eyes.
In addition to ripping the punishment, Ekblad said the score would be settled at a later date.

The suspension is a joke, but the score will be settled and he’ll serve his punishment then. You have to love this part of hockey.
