Oilers ‘McDavid is not expected to be disciplined for hit at Kings’ Kempe

Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid is not expected to receive any additional discipline for his hit on Los Angeles Kings striker Adrian Kempe.

While fighting for the puck in the corner at the Kings end, McDavid put a shoulder in the back of Kempe, who hit his face first against the glass, at 13:27 of the third period, and the score 2-1 to LA McDavid was issued a major and a game of abuse, and sent to the locker room.

On the resulting five-minute powerplay, the Kings scored three goals to put the game out of reach.

Kempe, who was shaken and bloody at the game, later returned to the game and scored the first of the three power-play goals with McDavid off.
