The recent altercation during the Edmonton Oilers and Minnesota Wild match stirred controversy, particularly surrounding a contentious hit that many expected would prompt fines or suspensions. However, recent updates suggest a different outcome.

The center of contention was a collision between Edmonton's Evander Kane and the Wild's Jonas Brodin. Kane directed Brodin into the boards, causing Brodin to leave the game due to injury, despite no penalty being assessed for the incident. In response, Ryan Hartman retaliated against Kane, leading to a penalty for himself.


Wild reporter Michael Russo disclosed that no punitive measures will be taken against Kane. Russo clarified that Brodin had foreseen the incoming hit, had adequate time to defend himself, but was unable to do so effectively.


"Hearing no discipline coming to Evander Kane likely because Brodin shoulder checks and didn't protect himself despite the fact Evander Kane needlessly drives his head into the glass."


Brodin's possible absence, considering his recent display, could severely hinder the Wild. The ongoing dispute adds an additional element of curiosity to the aftermath of a game that undeniably made a mark.
