Easy come, easy go.

Maple Leafs forward Ryan Hollweg, fresh off a two-game suspension, received a five-minute boarding major and a game misconduct for his hit on St. Louis Blues defenceman Alex Pietrangelo in Monday's action at the Air Canada Centre.

As a result, Hollweg will automatically be handed a three-game suspension, which moving forward will increase by one game each time he gets called for boarding or hitting from behind.

The league also has the right to hand Hollweg a stiffer suspension as part of supplementary discipline, if they so choose.

Hollweg received an automatic two-game suspension last week after collecting his third boarding or checking from behind major in a 41-game span - two from last season and one from a preseason game against the Blues.

Hollweg was acquired by the Maple Leafs for a fifth-round draft pick on July 14.
