Sundqvist received a two-minute minor penalty for boarding after checking Grzelcyk hard in the head during Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Grzelcyk, a Charlestown, Massachusetts native, did not return to the game and did not travel with the team to St. Louis. Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy said on Thursday that he spoke with him, and he is in good spirits despite the circumstances.
