Demers Tossed for Hit on Clutterbuck

Jason Demers was given a major for boarding and a game misconduct for the above hit on Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck in the second period of the Islanders-Stars game in Brooklyn.

Clutterbuck was down on the ice along the boards when Demers went for the big hit along the boards. The Islanders took a 3-2 lead on the ensuing power play.

Demers has been suspended once already this season for an elbowing incident in Pittsburgh, and will likely be disciplined for this hit.
