14 Comments

Islanders forward Anders Lee doesn’t have a disciplinary hearing scheduled following his hit on St. Louis’ Carl Gunnarsson during Saturday’s game, per Sportsnet.

Lee caught Gunnarsson with what appeared to be a high hit midway through an eventual 6-4 loss to the Blues, forcing Gunnarsson from the game entirely:

Lee wasn’t penalized on the play. Gunnarsson is listed as doubtful (upper-body) for tonight’s game against Florida.

UPDATE: From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch…

UPDATE 2: Well, looks as though the NHL’s Department of Player Safety has changed its mind…
