Kris Letang suspended one game

Kris Letang has been suspended for one game, the NHL Department of Player Safety has announced.

The NHL in their ruling states the suspension is for “interference” as Marcus Johansson was “not eligible” to be hit as he did not have possession of the puck.

“[Letang] delivers high forceful hit that makes significant head contact. This is interference.” — NHL Department of Player Safety
