No supplemental discipline for boarding of Sabres' Eichel

RALEIGH, N.C. – Johnny Boychuk's two-minute boarding penalty will be the only discipline he faces for Friday's hit on Jack Eichel.

The New York Islanders defenseman hit Eichel from behind into the boards midway through the third period of the Sabres' 3-2 overtime win. There will not be any supplemental discipline from the NHL's Department of Player Safety, a league source told The Buffalo News.

Eichel finished the game, though he briefly left for concussion testing as mandated by league spotters.

The Sabres will visit the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.
