Zac Rinaldo will not be suspended for charging Sean Couturier during Thursday's game.

Couturier left the contest with an upper-body injury while Rinaldo was assessed a five-minute major and game misconduct. The NHL felt that Rinaldo's hit was not interference because it fell within the brief window where a player that has lost possession of the puck is still eligible to be checked. The league also felt that while there is contact to the head, Rinaldo did not make Couturier's head the main point of contact.
