Montreal defenseman Douglas Murray has been suspended three games for an illegal check to the head of Tampa Bay’s Mike Kostka, the NHL announced on Thursday.

Kostka suffered a concussion on the play, and the player safety department noted that Murray had no history as a repeat offender prior to this hit.

Murray will now miss Montreal’s next three games — against Ottawa, Detroit and Chicago — and will forfeit $23,076.93 in salary to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
