NHL roundup: No discipline for Grabovski for alleged bite

The SportsXchange

The NHL announced Monday that Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski will not be further disciplined stemming from Saturday night's fight with Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty.

Several fights broke out in the third period of the Maple Leafs' 6-0 win. Grabovski was accused of biting Pacioretty's arm during their melee. Both were given 10-minute misconduct penalties. Grabovski was also issued a roughing minor.

After the league's Department of Player Safety interviewed the two players Monday, reviewed video of the incident and looked at medical reports, it could not determine conclusively that Grabovski bit Pacioretty. The league concluded that there was not sufficient evidence to impose additional sanctions.

--- The Tampa Bay Lightning's game against the Boston Bruins, which was postponed from Saturday because of the weather in the Boston area, will be played on Thursday, April 25, at TD Garden in Boston.

Meanwhile, the Lightning recalled forward Richard Panik from the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League. The Lightning also placed forward Ryan Malone on injured reserve with a lower body injury.

---The Edmonton Oilers have placed veteran forward Darcy Hordichuk on waivers.

Hordichuk, 32, has had just 8:08 of ice time this season.

---The Calgary Flames claimed veteran Joey MacDonald off waivers from Detroit. According to TSN, the Flames plan to use MacDonald as a backup for Miikka Kiprusoff, who could return from an injury Wednesday.
