The Washington Capitals will be without Dylan McIlrath to start the regular season after the defenseman was suspended four games Monday for an illegal check to the head of Boston Bruins forward Steven Fogarty.


McIlrath will miss two preseason games and the first two games of the regular season for the hit, which occurred during the third period of a 3-2 shootout loss to Boston on Sunday night. He was assessed a match penalty for misconduct, and Fogarty did not return as a result of injury.


McIlrath will lose $7,500 as a result of the suspension. He will make $750,000 this season -- his first with the Capitals on a two-year, two-way contract.


McIlrath, 29, played 16 games with the Detroit Red Wings last season. In parts of seven NHL campaigns with the New York Rangers, Florida Panthers and Detroit, he has three goals and two assists in 66 career games.

Strictly AHL fodder at this point, in the Caps organization now not the Wings but always a rugged nasty stay at home type. Looks like he will be staying home a bit more to start the year, lol
