NEW YORK — Calgary Flames winger Blake Coleman has been suspended for a pre-season game and a regular-season game for boarding Wednesday in Winnipeg.

He'll sit out Calgary's final pre-season game Friday at home against the Jets as well as the season-opener Oct. 16 in Edmonton.

Coleman signed a six-year, $29.4-million contract with the Flames in the off-season after winning back-to-back Stanley Cups with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

In his second pre-season game with the Flames, he was penalized for boarding Jets forward Jansen Harkins in the second period of a 3-2 loss.

Coleman will also forfeit $24,500 of his salary to the players' emergency assistance fund.
