No supplementary discipline for Kreider

January 7, 2014, by

Per Larry Brooks, the NHL Department of Player Safety will not pursue supplementary discipline on winger Chris Kreider for his hit on Fedor Tyutin last night. As noted in the goal breakdown, Kreider definitely slowed before hitting Tyutin, did not hit him in the numbers, and appeared to push him more than anything. The hit was in that danger area, but it’s more a testament to Kreider’s strength than it is a dirty hit.

Also Tyutin wasn’t seriously injured on the play, which plays a role in these things.

    The Rangers should try and get that major rescinded. It was uncalled for.

    Dumb call by any standard, no worse that Phaneuf’s hit on Sauer which went unpenalized. Atrocious refereeing continues in the NHL.
