This is what Senior VP of Player Safety, Brendan Shanahan, had to say:
“I had the hearing because I did make an initial assessment of the play as I do with all plays, but I did have some questions for Milan and I wanted to hear directly from him,” Shanahan told NHL.com. “They were regarding his intent; at what point did he know there was going to be a collision; and whether or not he felt he had the time to avoid the collision. I was satisfied with his answers.
“The minor penalty called on the ice was the correct call,” said Shanahan. “And, while it’s unfortunate that Miller was hurt I saw nothing egregious about this hit that would elevate it to supplemental discipline.”
That was anti-climactic. Can’t wait to hear Miller’s response.
