NEW YORK (AP) - New York Islanders forward Matt Martin was suspended for one game by the NHL on Wednesday for kneeing Dallas Stars defenseman Trevor Daley.

Martin, who was given a major penalty and was ejected from Tuesday night’s 3-2 overtime loss at Dallas, struck Daley just 1:48 into the game.

Martin, one of the NHL’s hardest hitters, will sit out when New York visits Nashville on Thursday night and will forfeit $5,376.34 in salary that will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

He has eight goals and 14 points while playing in New York’s first 65 games this season.
