Calgary Flames forward Ryan Lomberg was suspended one game for leaving the bench on a legal line change for the sole purpose of starting an altercation, the NHL's Department of Player Safety announced Friday.

The one-game ban is in addition to his automatic one-game suspension which was previously issued for instigating in the final five minutes of regulation during Thursday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

Head coach Bill Peters was also been fined $10,000 for the incident.

Lomberg jumped Wild defenseman Matt Dumba after the blueliner delivered an open-ice hit on Mikael Backlund in the final minute of regulation.

Dumba is not expected to face supplemental discipline for the hit, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.
