NHL won't discipline Eric Nystrom for hit
By Mark Stepneski
The NHL won't take any disciplinary action against Dallas Stars forward Eric Nystrom for his hit on Pittsburgh defenseman Kris Letang in Wednesday night's game at American Airlines Center, according Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk.
Nystrom was given a roughing penalty for the hit, which happened as Letang was trying to chip a puck past the Stars forward in the Pittsburgh zone midway through the first period. Letang left the game and did not return. He was listed as day-to-day with an upper body injury by Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma following the game.
