Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn will not receive supplemental discipline for boarding Arizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson during the second period of Wednesday's contest, according to The Athletic's Sean Shapiro.

The Stars captain was assessed a five-minute boarding major and game misconduct for the hit. Ekman-Larsson was helped to the locker room but later returned to finish the contest.

"Player Safety viewed it as a 50-50 puck chase, not a typical boarding suspension where one player was tracking another," according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun. "They felt it was definitely worth the boarding major which Benn got in-game, but felt it didn't rise to the level of supplemental discipline."

Benn has never received supplemental discipline over his 11-year NHL career.
