Brendan Shanahan had a pair of disciplinary meetings on Thursday due to hits that took place on Wednesday night. We're still waiting to here what comes out of the hearing that involved New York Rangers defenseman Andre Deveaux for his hit to the head of Florida Panthers forward Tomas Fleischmann, but the NHL did announce that Winnipeg Jets defense Zach Bogosian will not face any supplemental discipline for his hit on Washington Capitals rookie Cody Eakin.
This is what the play looked like midway through the second period of Washington's 4-3 overtime victory on Wednesday night:
According to the disciplinary board in a statement released by the league, "in spite of the fact that there was contact with the head, when Bogosian committed to the check, he was coming for Eakin's shoulder and Eakin's change of direction and opening up after his dump-in just prior to the contact contributes enough that there will be no supplementary discipline."
