Columbus Blue Jackets forward Blake Comeau has been suspended two games for borading Red Wings defenseman Brendan Smith.

The hit came on Tuesday night in Columbus' 4-1 win over the Red Wings. Comeau, who has three goals and nine assists this season, was assessed just a two-minute minor for boarding but the league's discipline office saw it as being more egregious than that.

Smith fortunately avoided injury from the hit and stayed in the game for the Wings.
