According to reports, Tim Thomas won’t face a disciplinary hearing for his high-stick on Boston’s Carl Soderberg in Tuesday night’s 6-2 loss, nor will Buffalo’s Mike Weber for an elbow on Washington’s Nicklas Backstrom.

CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty passes along news of the Thomas decision, which came shortly after the former B’s goalie knocked Soderberg in the head in the waning moments of a blowout loss:

Thomas was given a two-minute minor for the infraction.

As for Weber — who also evaded a hearing, according to the Washington Post — he came under fire after catching Backstrom with a high hit late in regulation of Washington’s 5-4 OT win:

Weber wasn’t penalized on the play, but Backstrom addressed the hit following the game.

“I was going for a change, that’s the only thing I know,” he said, per The Post. “You saw the hit yourself, make your own judgment if it belongs in this league or not.”
