Report: No suspension coming for Trouba after hit on Crosby

And an update on Crosby's condition from head coach Mike Sullivan.


According to NHL insider Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet there will be no hearing for New York Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba following his hit on Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby last night, meaning that there will likely be no suspension incoming for Trouba.

From Friedman:

Here's the hit in question:

Crosby left the game at that point and didn't return. Following the game Pens head coach Mike Sullivan refused to comment on his captain's status but today he did in fact confirm that Crosby has an upper body injury and that his status for Game 6 will be evaluated ASAP.

Check it out:

Sullivan also said it's "not (his) responsibility" to comment on whether or not the hit warrants suspension, but it's pretty clear from his body language and his tone that he was expecting supplemental discipline for Trouba.
