NHL won't hold hearing for Seidenberg hit on Jonathan Toews: Report (VIDEO)

The NHL’s Department of Player Safety decided on Friday that Dennis Seidenberg’s hit that rattled Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks Thursday night isn’t worthy of supplemental discipline, and there won’t be a hearing for the Boston Bruins defenseman.

As nasty as the behind-the-back check looks, both players were chasing the puck and Seidenberg legitimately uses his shoulder before being called for the boarding minor.

Although Toews was visibly shaken — he stayed on the ice — after going head-first into the boards. It looks like the NHL got it right by not calling for further punishment.

The real infraction — letting a woozy Toews play on.
