Anders Lee will not take additional discipline for the Nicklas Backstrom shot



Washington Capital was furious with Anders Lee’s header that injured Nicklas Backstrom after game 1, Wednesday.

John Carlson called the unsuspecting blow “really dirty”, TJ Oshie described it as “extremely late” and “cheap”, and Todd Reirden said it was “hunting”.

Despite the Capital’s protests, the NHL’s Player Safety Department will not discipline Anders Lee. Athletic’s Arthur Staple reported the news on Twitter.

Lee was fined two minutes for interfering in the match and challenged by John Carlson and Tom Wilson.

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

“I don’t know if Nick is ready,” Trotz said. “Anders was a strong guy, the shot was taken and they responded, he and Wilson fought and that was probably the end of it. We shall see.”
