According to the AHL website, Dylan McIlrath has been suspended for two games as a consequence of an elbowing incident Thursday night vs. Bridgeport.
McIlrath will miss tonight's game at Springfield and Monday (Dec. 31) at Portland.
Here's video of the hit…
…man that hit was vicious. That guy is probably eating from a tube today.
…so much for getting to see him play during the live stream tonight.
…what you're seeing from McIlrath so far this season (injury and suspension) is something Rangers fans are going to have to get used to with him. When you play as physical and rugged as he does, those things are inevitable.
