Throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Vegas Golden Knights' defenseman Alex Pietrangelo has been a magnet for controversy, and the trend continued in the Stanley Cup Final, specifically in game four.

After exiting the penalty box, Pietrangelo wasted no time in joining the post-game scrum. The National Hockey League Department of Player Safety now holds the power to determine if Pietrangelo's actions will prevent him from returning to the Cup Final.
According to the rulebook, a player leaving the box and instigating an altercation, resulting in a stoppage of play, is subject not only to penalties from the incident but also to a potential 10-game suspension.
However, if the opposing player is not the aggressor, the 10-game suspension can be waived. The Department of Player Safety's decision will ultimately determine the fate of Alex Pietrangelo and whether he will face a significant suspension.

As time passes since the incident occurred on Saturday night, it appears that no action will be taken. Pietrangelo may have dodged a bullet, narrowly escaping what could have been a costly suspension.
