Devils blueliner Adam Larsson doesn’t have a disciplinary hearing scheduled after getting tossed for a hit on Vancouver rookie Jared McCann, per an NHL spokesman.

Larsson was given an interference major and game misconduct during Sunday’s game, a 4-3 New Jersey win in OT. The hit occurred midway through the third period; McCann left the playing surface briefly, but returned to the game.

Following the game, Larsson’s New Jersey teammates and head coach John Hynes disagreed with the call on the ice.

“It’s a difficult play for referees to call in motion,” Hynes said, per the Star-Ledger. “But our perception was that it was a fair play.”

I’m not really worried about them suspending him,” added Devils captain Andy Greene.

The Devils next play on Tuesday, a home date against the St. Louis Blues.
