McDavid won't be disciplined for boarding Kings' Kempe
Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid won't face any supplemental discipline after he received a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for boarding Los Angeles Kings forward Adrian Kempe during Sunday's contest, according to Sportsnet's Mark Spector.
Here's a look at the play:
Kempe was bleeding after the hit but stayed in the game. He scored a goal during the ensuing power play to give the Kings a 3-1 lead. Drew Doughty and Trevor Moore added two more goals with the man advantage to secure a 5-1 victory.
This marks the second time in McDavid's career that he was handed a game misconduct, according to Spector. The first instance occurred Jan. 25, 2018, when he pointed to the booth upstairs after scoring a goal in the shootout.
