Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog received a two-game suspension for boarding Chicago Blackhawks forward Kirby Dach in Wednesday’s season opener in Denver.

The NHL Department of Player Safety issued the suspension Thursday after a hearing with the Avalanche forward.

The incident occurred with 3:37 left in the third period after Landeskog shoved Dach while the latter was on one knee near the boards. Landeskog received a minor penalty for boarding as well as matching roughing penalties with Blackhawks forward Tyler Johnson following the incident with Dach.

Dach remained in the game after the hit from Landeskog.

Landeskog collected a goal and an assist in Colorado’s 4-2 win. The 28-year-old Swede has 514 points (219 goals, 295 assists) in 688 career games since being selected by the Avalanche with the second overall pick of the 2011 NHL Draft.

Colorado’s next two games are Saturday at home against the St. Louis Blues and Tuesday on the road against the Washington Capitals.
