Much to the dismay of Minnesota Wild fans – and perhaps much more to the dismay of Boston Bruins fans – Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler won’t receive any supplemental discipline for his low-bridging of Cal Clutterbuck last night at the Xcel Energy Center.
Here’s Kesler’s hit on Clutterbuck that earned a minor penalty for clipping:
The NHL’s Department of Player Safety told Puck Daddy that Kesler wasn’t further disciplined because his clip was “not overly vicious.” However, they’d stick it in Kesler’s file for the future.
Salo, you’ll recall, suffered a concussion on the Marchand clip and missed six games. In handing out the five-game ban, the NHL called the play a “predatory low hit delivered intentionally.”
Clutterbuck, on the other hand, wasn’t injured.
