Anders Lee will not receive additional discipline for the Nicklas Backstrom hit



The Washington capitals were angry with Anders Lee right-footing that injured Nicklas Backstrom after Game One on Wednesday.

John Carlson called the dubious hit “really fucking”, TJ Oshie described it as “extremely late” and “free”, and Todd Reirden said it was “predatory”.

Despite the capital protests, the NHL Department of Player Safety will not discipline Anders Lee. Athletics Arthur Staple reported the news on Twitter.

Lee was given a two-minute penalty kick during the game and was countered to fight by John Carlson and Tom Wilson.

Islands head coach Barry Trotz called the hit just a “hockey game”.

“I do not know if Nick was ready or not,” Trotz said. “Anders is a strong guy, the hit became and they responded, he and Wilson fought and that was probably the end of it. We’ll see.”
