No discipline for Pouliot

Benoit Pouliot will have a hearing with NHL’s Player Safety department after an illegal check to the head of Florida’s Keith Yandle during Friday’s game.

Here are a few looks at the hit:

It appears Pouliot kept his arm in, but still may have made contact with Yandle’s head. Either way, Pouliot may be hit with a fine at the least. We’ll update you once Player Safety makes a ruling. Hopefully, Pouliot avoids any suspension.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
