NHL decides not to suspend Jets defenceman Zach Bogosian for hit on Cody Eakin

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Winnipeg Jets defenceman Zach Bogosian will not be fined or suspended for his hit to the head Wednesday on Washington Capitals centre Cody Eakin.

The NHL's department of player safety determined said Thursday that although there was contact with the head, Bogosian was targeting Eakin's shoulder when he committed to the check.

Eakin's change of direction and opening up after his dump in just prior to the contact contributed to the decision against supplementary discipline.

Bogosian was not penalized for the hit, which occurred at 9:21 of the second period in the Capitals' 4-3 shootout win.
