Carolina Hurricanes forward Warren Foegele won't face supplementary discipline for his hit from behind on Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie, Hurricanes general manager Don Waddell said, according to The News & Observer's Luke DeCock.
The incident happened with just over five minutes remaining in Game 4 on Thursday night. Oshie left the game immediately and Capitals head coach Todd Reirden announced after the contest that the 32-year-old "won't be playing anytime soon." Foegele was assessed a two-minute minor for boarding on the play.
Oshie has been an essential piece of the Capitals' offensive core. The skilled winger contributed eight goals and 21 points in 24 contests en route to the franchise's first Stanley Cup victory last spring.
Coming off his first full regular-season campaign, Foegele has never been suspended at the NHL level. The 6-foot-2 grinder has been a catalyst for the Hurricanes' offense this postseason, posting three goals and five points over four games.
