NHL release on decision to let Grabovski skate


From the official NHL release:

NHL DEPARTMENT OF PLAYER SAFETY ASSESSES
NO SUPPLEMENTAL DISCIPLINE TO MAPLE LEAFS’ MIKHAIL GRABOVSKI


NEW YORK (February 11, 2013) – Following a telephone hearing conducted this morning, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety has decided not to assess Supplemental Discipline to Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski for an incident that occurred during NHL Game No. 160 Saturday night in Montreal.

After interviewing both players involved in the incident and reviewing all of the available video and medical reports, the League could not determine conclusively that Grabovski bit Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty.

The Department of Player Safety has concluded that there was not sufficient evidence to support imposing Supplemental Discipline.
