There will be no disciplinary hearing for Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Bollig for his hit on Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise, a source said on Friday morning.
Bollig hit Parise in the top of his back in the second period of the Blackhawks' 3-2 shootout victory on Thursday night. Parise was down for several moments and went to the locker room. He came back soon after, however, and finished the game.
Wild coach Mike Yeo wasn't happy about the hit, telling Mike Russo of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that he, "didn't like it. Saw it was coming. You could see the shift before (Bollig) was targeting those guys with a couple late hits."
The Blackhawks play the Columbus Blue Jackets at 6 CT tonight. The Blackhawks, already without Patrick Kane (left knee) and Jonathan Toews (left arm) will also probably be without defenseman Johnny Oduya, who suffered a lower-body injury in Thursday's pregame warmups. Michal Handzus could play tonight. Teuvo Teravainen and Michal Rozsival are likely to play vs. the Blue Jackets.
