Andrew Desjardins' match penalty for his open-ice hit on Chicago Blackhawks forward Jamal Mayers has been rescinded.
The incident occurred on Tuesday. "The way the linesman saw it on the ice, he was convinced it was a major penalty," NHL supervisor of officials Mick McGeough said. "Unfortunately, he was wrong. It's been overruled, taken care of the by the league and Brendan Shanahan and the safety committee, and there are no more issues right now." Chicago ended up winning the game 5-3.
