The NHL suspended Red Wings captain Dylan Larkin one video game for roughing Lightning forward Mathieu Joseph.

As the suspension description video notes, part of the factor for the penalty is the “retaliatory nature” of Larkin’s punch on Joseph. When viewing the video, you’ll obviously note Joseph’s hit on Larkin prior to that response. It doesn’t seem like Joseph will get additional discipline for his examine Larkin.

In between retaliation and the “forceful” punch, the NHL figured out that Larkin was worthy of a one-game suspension. It’s the very first time the 25-year-old’s been fined or suspended by the NHL.
