Here's some other confirmations.

Hearing that there is no hearing planned by NHL Player Safety dept. for Erik Cole's hit on Adam Larsson last night.

From what I am hearing no punishment for Cole on Larsson hit.

Nothing officially from the NHL yet but it appears Erik Cole will not face any added punishment for his hit to Adam Larsson's head.

Good...he shouldn't be suspended for that hit. He didn't target Larsson's head, he was trying to lay a body check and Larsson's reaching ahead for the puck put him in a dangerous position.

If Cole would have skated by him and clipped Larsson in the head, then I'd say give him a 2 game suspension...but players still have the right to throw body checks and players still have to be responsible for their well-being and not put themselves into vulnerable positions.
