No Supplemental Discipline For Crosby After Throwing Fehervary Into Boards



Capitals defenseman Martin Fehervary and Penguins forward Sidney Crosby

Sidney Crosby will reportedly not face supplemental discipline for his controversial play on Martin Fehervary in the Washington Capitals’ dominant 6-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday.

The NHL’s Department of Player Safety will not take action against No. 87 for his questionable actions against the Capitals rookie blueliner.

After dumping the puck into the zone, Crosby raced with Fehervary for the puck behind the net. During this pursuit, the frustrated Penguins captain grabbed Fehervary and threw him into the boards. It was a dangerous play that saw the 22-year-old defenseman go face-first into the boards and fall to the ice. Fehervary was fine and got right back up. No call was made on the ice.

Crosby, 34, was playing in his first game since coming off the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol list. He went without a point, picking up a shot, a hit, a +/- of minus-1 and a penalty through 16:57 minutes.

Fehervary didn’t seem too bothered by it and didn’t have much to say about it postgame.

“I don’t know, I don’t even know what should I talk about,” Fehervary laughed. “I don’t care. We’ll see next game.”

Fehervary, meanwhile, scored a shorthanded goal and stood out with a stellar defensive performance. He recorded three shots, three hits, one block and a +/- of plus-2 in 16:59 minutes.
