Max Domi made an early exit from his Montreal Canadiens preseason debut.

The forward was given a two-minute minor for roughing and a match penalty after punching Florida Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad less than a minute into the third period of Wednesday's preseason tilt.

The infraction will be looked at by the NHL's Department of Player Safety, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun. As for Ekblad, he did not return to the game, according to Sportsnet's Eric Engels.

Domi was acquired from the Arizona Coyotes this offseason in a trade that sent forward Alex Galchenyuk to the desert.
