Dmitry Orlov won’t be disciplined for shoving linesman

Update: 5 p.m.: Dmitry Orlov will not receive a fine or suspension for shoving linesman Jean Morin in the second period of Tuesday night’s game against Carolina, according to an NHL spokesman.

In situations where “abuse of officials” is used as the explanation of a misconduct penalty, the league’s hockey operations department typically makes a distinction between players who receive a game misconduct as opposed to a 10-minute misconduct, which is what Orlov earned.

Game misconducts usually will warrant a suspension, while 10-minute misconducts lessen the chance of a player receiving additional discipline.
