Edmonton Oilers ahead Leon Draisaitl has escaped supplemental self-discipline for his hit on Aleksander Barkov that knocked the Florida Panthers’ captain out of Recreation 2 of the Stanley Cup Closing on Monday night time.

Based on Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, the one punishment coming from the NHL Division of Participant Security following the Panthers’ 4-1 win can be a high quality to Sam Carrick of the Oilers for slashing Panthers’ defenseman Dmitry Kulikov.

Draisaitl was given a two-minute roughing minor.

Afterward, Draisaitl mentioned he did not see something unlawful within the play — not less than something that warranted supplemental self-discipline

The DoPS didn’t view Draisaitl’s hit as predatory or include an intent to injure, in keeping with ESPN’s Greg Wyshynski,

Draisaitl has by no means been suspended and solely acquired two fines in his NHL profession.

Barkov can be evaluated once more on Wednesday, at some point earlier than the sequence resumes for Recreation 3 in Edmonton (8 p.m. ET; ABC).

“We had some issues that wanted to be checked out as we speak that received checked out,” Maurice said. “There’s nothing sinister there. He form of handed that. He felt higher as we speak. Feels good. However you’ve received to present it one other 24 hours to ensure that he feels sturdy.”
