Ryan Lindgren will not be suspended for his hit on Joonas Donskoi

Department of Player Safety ruled he will not be suspended

The NHL’s Department of Player Safety has ruled that Ryan Lindgren will not receive a suspension or any other discipline for his hit on Joonas Donskoi last night:

Here was Lindgren’s hit on Donskoi:

Earlier today, news hit that Lindgren would have a hearing, which usually means a suspension, so this is a bit of a surprise. But a good surprise nonetheless.

It remains to be seen how Libor Hajek will (if at all) be inserted into the lineup. The prevailing thought process was that he would slide in for Lindgren if he was suspended. Since that didn’t happen, we might get some news on him soon.

  • It is a disgrace that a Ranger didnt either jump in as Lindgren got walloped by Kadri or exact revenge for their teammate later in the game. Its Dale Rolfe all over again. No sh$%t that goals win the game, but this is a team game, you protect your own (as Kadri did) and you cant score goals if you are concerned for your back or your safety. Embarrassing lack of character.

    • It’s not Dale Rolfe all over again, give me a break….Lindgren in the AHL was a guy who could handle himself, and at 6 feet 200 lbs he’s having trouble fighting at the NHL level.

      The team won the game against a good team. There was no dirty response to Lindgren’s hit from Colorado the rest of the game, so literally—what are you even talking about? Lindgren got his butt kicked, it happens—he needs to learn how to fight at this level or stop dropping the gloves.

      In a game that was either tied or in a 1-goal differential for most of the game, revenge is best left for another time. In this case a Ranger got his butt kicked by a player who was the same exact size as him (Kadri). Doesn’t bode well for Lindgren as a fighter. Over-the-top calls for retributive violence like your post should be left in the last century.

      • I agree with RJCY The Rangers have been soft for too long. QUEUE…Did you see the Nashville game where Jesper Fast was mauled by Fabro of the Preds He was crossed checked 4 times and punched in the face while lying on the ice. Only Jacob Trouba tried to stop the mugging. That would not happen on the Bruins, the Caps, the Asslanders or any other top team. Total disgrace no Ranger went after Fabro. They need to toughen up. Even the kids, who have good size, need to play more physical. Chytil is starting to play more physical. Teams know the Rangers are soft..

  • The kid needs to take boxing lessons. If you want to play that type of game in the NHL, you better be able to back it up. That was an awesome hard clean check, but he paid the price by getting his butt kicked ,. He took a beating!

  • Rjcy, pull your skirt up and calm down. Why do you keep using the word “violence”, it’s clean hard hit and a fight afterwards. I’m betting you never played, if you did you’d be the kid we’d go after and scare off his game. Man up you sound like a snowflake millennial.

    • Lol. Walter your’e confusing me with Queue, who I was facetiously quoting. Im the guy who is often accused of being the Neanderthal and advocating Broad St Bullies hockey. My point was: Kadri did the right thing. No Ranger met the call.
