Jan 11 - 1:40 AM

Zach Sill has been suspended for two games for boarding Adam McQuaid.

The NHL noted that Sill was never eligible to check McQuaid during the play, which occurred during Tuesday's game. The onus was on Sill to avoid or minimize the force of the hit, but instead Sill hit "through McQuaid, driving his head forcefully into the glass." The department of player safety factored in McQuaid's injury on the play as well as Sill's previously clean history. Sill can return on Jan. 10.

Zach Sill was one of the few Toronto Maple Leafs who stood out in Saturday's loss to Ottawa.

Sill dropped the gloves twice and collected 10 penalty minutes in the process, but he also chipped in offensively with an assist on Leo Komarov's second period goal. The 26-year-old finished the night with three hits and a takeaway in just over eight minutes of ice time. "I’ll tell you what, he’s got the most heart I’ve seen in a long time," Horachek said of Sill. "This kid is just excited and enthusiastic. I just love his approach. He comes to the rink happy and battles every day, he sticks up for his teammates. He does his job the right way."

Zach Sill dropped the gloves with Steve Ott in Saturday’s embarrassing loss to the St. Louis Blues.

"Win or lose, guys in this room, we are trying to work hard and we are trying to do the right things," Sill said. "Everyone has a career after this year, so you try to put your best foot forward every game. We have 16 more games to do that." Sill finished the night with five penalty minutes, six hits and one shot on goal. He was acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Daniel Winnik trade.

Zach Sill will be in the lineup for Toronto on Thursday.

He will be playing in his first game with the Leafs since he was acquired in the trade that sent Daniel Winnik to Pittsburgh. "I'm an energy guy," Sill said of his style. "I'm a fourth-liner and that probably isn't going to change. I'm not going to put up a lot of points, but I'm going to give a spark when the team needs it." He is slated to play with Peter Holland and David Booth on the fourth line.
