Max Domi of the Coyotes suspended one game for instigating a late-game fight with the Ducks’ Ryan Garbutt

The NHL suspended Max Domi of the Arizona Coyotes for instigating a fight with Ryan Garbutt of the Ducks in the final five minutes of Thursday’s game at Glendale, Ariz. Domi objected to a hard but clean check Garbutt laid on the Coyotes’ Oliver Ekman-Larsson late in the Ducks’ 5-1 victory. Domi pursued Garbutt and began punching him after catching up along the boards. Garbutt didn’t fight back but was given a fighting major. Domi was penalized for instigating the fight and ejected.

Domi forfeits  $4,641.58, with the money going to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
