NHL: COOKE FACES NO HEARING OR DISCIPLINE FOR KARLSSON INJURY
The National Hockey League has already decided that there will be no hearing and no supplemental discipline for Penguins forward Matt Cooke regarding the injury to Ottawa Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson.
Cooke was tangled up with Karlsson near the puck along the boards on Wednesday night when his skate blade cut the left achilles of the Norris Trophy-winning blueliner.
The Senators said that Karlsson will require surgery and will be out indefinitely.
The league said on Thursday that the Department of Player Safety has reviewed the incident and that Brendan Shanahan has spoken with both general managers.
