After facing league inquisition for allegedly biting Pittsburgh’s Kris Letang in the waning moments of the Flyers’ 5-4 loss on Thursday night, forward Scott Hartnell has been found not guilty of any biting.
The league has reviewed the incident and Hartnell will not be suspended nor fined.
“We participated in a disciplinary hearing this A.M.,” said Hartnell’s agent Allan Walsh on his twitter. “The verdict: no suspension, no fine.”
According to John Boruk of Csnphilly.com, a league source explained that Letang made the mistake of going back to the locker room after the incident. It may have been a different story had Letang stayed on the ice.
