Hossa was assessed a five-minute major boarding penalty for shoving Hamhuis into the boards with 1 minute, 3 seconds remaining in regulation.
NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell held a disciplinary hearing with Hossa on Sunday afternoon and ruled against a suspension.
Here is Campbell's official statement:
"I have made the decision that this play does not warrant supplemental discipline after considering all of the facts, including reviewing the video and speaking with Mr. Hossa. This play is distinguishable from recent incidents by a number of factors, including the degree of contact involved; the fact that the consequences of the play do not appear to be as severe; that this was a hockey play involving a race for the puck; that Mr. Hossa is not a repeat offender and that the call of a major penalty by the Referee was significant and appropriate."
