Habs' Max Domi suspended for rest of pre-season

Most of the Habs players skated back to some degree to reset, except for Domi who was having a conversation with Florida Panthers defenceman Aaron Ekblad in the corner.

No matter what Ekblad did to anger Domi, no matter how legitimate that anger was, it doesn't excuse or pardon what he did next. There's intent from the 23-year-old to drop the gloves and throw some hands, but Ekblad wasn't interested.

And really, when you look at how it escalated to that point, a couple of whacks in the shin pads doesn't really warrant a fight, let alone a blindsided haymaker on the nose.

The Canadiens' big offseason acquisition sure made an impact - on Aaron Ekblad's skull - in his first taste of action with Montreal.

"We definitely won't forget about it", Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo said. "You don't do that". Domi began tugging on Ekblad's shirt, asking him to fight. "You don't do those types of things".

It's not the first time Domi has done something like this, although under different circumstances.

The NHL has suspended Montreal Canadiens forward Max Domi for the remainder of the preseason, the league announced on Thursday.

14 - Number of penalty minutes racked up by Tie's son, Max, in his first preseason tilt, picking up a two-minute roughing minor, a five-minute major, and a match penalty in the third period against the Panthers. It was the beginning of the third period, and the Habs were still down 2-1 and in need of a strong push to get back in the game.

In case you're wondering, Montreal and Florida don't meet up again until December 28.
