None of the combatants from Monday’s incident-filled Toronto-Calgary game will face disciplinary hearings, an NHL spokesman confirmed this morning.
The two sides combined for 16 minor penalties across a nasty, chippy affair that included:
— Flames captain Mark Gioradano quickly jumping Komarov in retaliation.
The incident that drew the most attention was Komarov’s hit on Gaudreau. The diminutive Calgary winger looked to be in trouble after the check — requiring assistance off the ice — but went through concussion protocol and was cleared to return a short while after.
Komarov’s hit was deemed legal, and he didn’t receive a penalty on the play.
“I feel fine,” Gaudreau told the Calgary Herald following the game. “It’s part of hockey, you’re going to get hit every once in a while and with the concussion-test stuff, they want to make sure you’re alright.
“So I had to go in there and do that, and it was fine.”
