The NHL has handed Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Nick Boynton a one-game suspension for gesturing a throat slash towards Blair Jones of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Boynton made the gesture after the two players fought during a preseason game on Wednesday.

This is Boynton's second suspension for an inappropriate gesture. He was also suspended for one game in 2005-06 while playing for the Boston Bruins.

While Boynton may continue to play in the exhibition games, Chicago will be without him for its regular season opener, which will take place Oct. 7 versus the Avalanche in Colorado.
