NEW YORK - The NHL will not suspend Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski for an alleged biting incident in Saturday's game against Montreal.
The league says there was no conclusive evidence that Grabovski bit Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty.
Pacioretty immediately displayed the wound to a referee and was later forced to take a tetanus shot, but the alleged attack will go unpunished nonetheless.
The incident occurred during a scuffle after passions ran high near the end of Saturday night's Leafs-Canadiens game, which the visiting Toronto squad won 6-0.
