No supplemental discipline for Chimera after Schultz hit


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.
