<>during the first period of an NHL hockey game at Madison Square Garden on October 31, 2013 in New York City.

Rangers forward Chris Kreider doesn’t have any disciplinary hearing scheduled for his hit on Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin on Monday night, a NHL spokesman has confirmed.

Kreider was given a five-minute boarding major and game misconduct for this infraction, which occurred late in the first period:

Brodin left the game momentarily, but returned around the midway mark of the second period and went on to log 22:21 time on ice for the game, including 8:32 in the final frame.

Kreider doesn’t have a history of supplemental discipline, though has been called into question on a couple of occasion, includin one for cross-checking Florida’s Scottie Upshall last season.

Kreider also infamously collided with Montreal goalie Carey Price during last year’s playoffs, knocking the Habs netminder out of the Eastern Conference Final.

Note: The Rangers don’t play again until Saturday, so it is possible the NHL could change its mind and schedule a hearing later in the week.
