Brace Hemmelgarm / USA TODAY Sports

Nino Niederreiter received a rare five-minute major and game misconduct for interference late in Thursday's game against Dallas.

The Minnesota Wild forward caught Patrick Sharp in open ice, causing the Stars forward to do a midair flip.

A closer look shows Niederreiter appeared to be tripped up moments prior, causing him to stumble and make contact with Sharp.

No word on whether Niederreiter will face a hearing for the incident.
