Boston Bruins forward Carl Soderberg won’t face a fine or suspension for his check on Matt Calvert of the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Columbus Dispatch’s Aaron Portzline reports.

The hit occurred during the second period of the Blue Jackets’ eventual 3-1 win against the Bruins on Saturday:

The check didn’t draw a penalty, yet Blue Jackets head coach Todd Richards wasn’t happy about it, deeming the blow a “shot right to the head.”

Calvert (pictured) bounced back from that hit to score the game-winner and an empty-net goal in the third period. Here’s a video of the clincher:

Calvert, 25, has dealt with some injury issues this season (basically fitting in with the rest of the Blue Jackets), so we’ll keep an eye out to see if anything lingers from the hit.
