Heard earlier today from league that there was no further discipline coming for Anders Lee as of noon. Would say now it's certain. #IslesWell, here is a video of the incident below, you be the judge.

Given the leagues recent track record with incidents similar to this, I expect Lee to be suspended for a game or two. Although, I am not sure that is fair because after watching it a few times I am not convinced that Lee's intention on the play was to hit him in the manner that he did.
