Update: Lowry suspended one game

One game without pay. That's the additional discipline Winnipeg Jets forward Adam Lowry will receive for his hit on Buffalo Sabres' forward Patrick Kaleta.

The ruling came Thursday afternoon from the NHL's Department of Player Safety.

Based on his average annual salary, Lowry will forfeit $4,453.41 with the money going to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Lowry was given a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct late in the second period. His hit sent Kaleta face first into the boards. Kaleta, who broke his face while blocking a shot in a preseason game, went to the locker room to have his jaw and teeth examined. He received some stitches for a cut to his lip but returned for the third period.
