John Erskine got two minutes for boarding Trevor Daley, but he will not face any other discipline from the league.
NHL spokesman John Dellapina said in an email that Erskine will not be suspended or fined.
Erskine on Tuesday night explained what he was thinking on the play, which included him driving Daley’s head into the boards.
“I went to go hit him. I know the guy so I wasn’t going in intending to do a head shot or anything,” Erskine said. “It was accidental and we’ll see what happens.”
