It was a bit of a scary moment last night when the Toronto Maple Leafs were closing out their Game 2 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Defenseman Jake Muzzin laid on the ice for about 15 minutes after a cross check from Blue Jackets' forward Pierre-Luc Dubois.
As a result of the cross check, Muzzin's head banged Oliver Bjorkstrand's leg and eventually Muzzin was carried off the ice on a stretcher.
There was no penalty called on the play for cross checking and Muzzin was taken out of the bubble to St. Michael's Hospital not too far from ScotiaBank Arena.
On Wednesday morning the NHL announced that there won't be any discipline handed out on the play.
Instead the NHL is just labeling it as a "unfortunate accident".
What do you think of the NHL's decision?
NHL is not looking at any discipline on the Muzzin injury play. Viewed as unfortunate accident.
