Report: No supplemental discipline for Hartnell knee on Paajarvi

Feb 24, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

According to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, Flyers forward Scott Hartnell won’t receive any additional punishment for his knee-on-knee hit on Edmonton’s Magnus Paajarvi:

The incident occurred late in the second period of Thursday’s 2-0 loss, with Hartnell receiving a two-minute kneeing minor on the play. The hit ended Paajarvi’s night — he didn’t play a shift in the third period — and some questioned Hartnell’s intent given that, moments earlier, he was on the receiving end of a hard hit from Corey Potter.

“I was just finishing my check. That’s part of my game, being physical,” Hartnell told the Edmonton Journal. “Hopefully he’s all right. I don’t know what happened to him or if he came back, but definitely there wasn’t any intent to injure.”

The Oilers haven’t released Paajarvi’s status yet. His knee is set to be evaluated this morning.

      What a Phony. Please do not try to copy the SoupCanArmy. We, The Franchise, are the only NHL team to employe players with monster Rods i.e. Geno Pringles etc… Maybe try a name like girouxskyjelly or hartnellgivesshandys

        You do realize how stupid it sounds to call your team “the franchise,” right? That’s a nickname that can be used for a single player because it implies that they’re the star player on the team and the face of the franchise. It’s like calling Neal “The Player.” Although I’m sure there are idiots out there who would think that sounds cool too…
