Boll has been suspended for three games for an illegal check to the head of the Ducks' Patrick Maroon on Tuesday.

Boll will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Thursday after he delivered an illegal check on the Ducks' Patrick Maroon in Tuesday's win.

Boll didn't receive a penalty for hit on Maroon, who was able to remain in the game. However, because he made contact with his shoulder to Maroon's head, the league office will review the play and hear Boll's side of the story before rendering a decision on any sort of punishment. The winger has only five points in 71 games this season, but leads the Blue Jackets and ranks 10th in the NHL with 109 PIM.

Boll took a hard shot to the hand during Monday's practice that left some concern about his availability for Tuesday's game, but there doesn't seem to be much worry any longer after he was able to take part in the Jackets' gameday skate. He'll assume his usual role as a grinder on the team's fourth line.

After playing a career-low 28 games in 2013-14 due to ankle and back injuries and a sports hernia, Boll is fully healthy in the early stages of training camp, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Post-Dispatch reports.

Boll has assumed duties as the Blue Jackets' primary enforcer since entering the NHL in 2007-08, but it appears coach Todd Richards is inclined to have Boll cut back on his fighting tendencies after a season marred by injuries. While he'll maintain an aggressive approach on the checking line, the 28-year-old Boll may look to pick his spots when it comes to hitting. A conscious effort to reign in his agitating style would be helpful in lengthening Boll's career, but if his penalty minutes and hit totals continue to plunge further downward, it may be difficult for offer much fantasy value.
