Buffalo Sabres forward Benoit Pouliot will receive no supplemental discipline for his hit on Florida Panthers defenseman Keith Yandle, the NHL Department of Player Safety announced.

Following their hearing with Pouliot, Player Safety noted that further angles of the hit showed Yandle's head was not the main point of contact as had been previously believed.

The news means Pouliot will be available to the Sabres when they take on the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.
