Dallas forward Antoine Roussel has no disciplinary hearing scheduled for charging Carolina goalie Anton Khudobin on Thursday night, an NHL spokesman confirmed.

The incident occurred early in the third period of the Stars’ 4-1 win. Here’s the video:

Roussel was given a five-minute charging major and game misconduct for the hit, which shook up Khudobin temporarily but didn’t force him from the game. The Russian goalie finished with 30 saves on 33 shots.
