NEW YORK (AP) - Boston Bruins forward Zac Rinaldo has been suspended five games without pay for an illegal hit to the head in Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay.

Rinaldo took out Lightning forward Cedric Paquette against the boards in the first period of Tampa Bay’s 4-1 victory. Rinaldo was assessed a minor penalty for illegal check to the head.

Rinaldo, who was also suspended for eight games last year, was considered a repeat offender. The suspension will cost him $51,829, which goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
