Report: No suspension for Shaw after charging Jackman

56 Comments

Chicago forward Andrew Shaw won’t face any supplemental discipline for his hit on St. Louis’ Barret Jackman from Sunday night, per the Tribune.

Here’s the hit in question, which occurred early in the second period of the Blues’ 2-1 win and netted Shaw a two-minute charging minor:

Shaw does have a disciplinary history — during the ’12 playoffs, he was suspended three games for bowling over Coyotes goalie Mike Smith. He was also tossed from a game in mid-March versus the Islanders for headbutting New York forward Brock Nelson (though Shaw wasn’t given any further punishment for that infraction.)

As for Jackman, he went uninjured on the play and returned to finish with 19:59 TOI. It’s worth noting this is the second time Jackman’s been on the receiving end of a questionable hit in a matter of days; against Calgary last Thursday, Flames forward Brandon Bollig was given five and a game for boarding Jackman.

Bollig did not receive any supplemental discipline either.
