No supplemental discipline for Chimera after Schultz hit

Oct 15, 2013, 4:59 PM EST

Capitals forward Jason Chimera has avoided punishment for boarding Edmonton’s Justin Schultz during a 4-2 win on Monday, according to the Washington Post.

Here’s the hit in question:

Schultz, 23, returned to action a short while after the hit. Chimera was dinged with a two-minute boarding penalty on the play.

This isn’t the first time Chimera has run into trouble with a questionable boarding play. In March of 2012, he was criticized for this hit on Boston’s Adam McQuaid:

Chimera didn’t receive any supplemental discipline for that hit, either.

    Meh, don’t see much in the Schultz ‘hit’. He does bump him but very little (no extension of the arms) so hardly something Schultz shouldn’t have been prepared for with accidental contact.

    The biggest factor was the speed they were skating at. Hard to give an extra punishment for that hit, I think.
