NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) - Islanders forward Trevor Gillies has been hit hard by the NHL again, getting a 10-game ban Friday for a dangerous shot from behind in his first game back from a nine-game suspension.

Gillies, one of the key combatants in New York’s fight-filled win over Pittsburgh on Feb. 11, played only four shifts Wednesday night before he was ejected for hitting Minnesota Wild forward Cal Clutterbuck from behind in the second period of the Islanders’ 4-1 home win.

In retaliation for Clutterbuck’s hit on Islanders rookie Juston DiBenedetto, that drew a boarding penalty, Gillies drilled Clutterbuck and was given a major penalty for checking from behind and ejected. Clutterbuck stayed in the game and then played Thursday at the New York Rangers.
