The NHL will not look further into the Erik Cole/Adam Larsson incident Saturday in at the Bell Centre. Cole was given a two minute minor penalty for delivering a check to the head of New Jersey defensmean Adam Larsson.
Brendan Shanahan reviewed the play Sunday and in announcing his decision, stated,
“We reviewed this play extensively. The overriding factor in this two-minute minor penalty not receiving further supplemental discipline is the significant change of position to Larsson’s head as he bends over and lunges for the puck just prior or simultaneous to the check by Erik Cole.”
