Darnell Nurse suspended for Game 6 for head-butting

Edmonton Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse has been suspended for one sport by the league for head-butting Los Angeles Kings ahead Phillip Danault. 


The incident occurred throughout a Kings’ energy play on the finish of the second interval on Tuesday night time. Danault was set as much as doubtlessly tip a shot in entrance of Edmonton’s internet when Nurse skated up and knocked helmets with him. 


Though Danault did not undergo a severe harm, the Division of Participant Security dominated in Wednesday’s listening to that Nurse’s actions had been intentional and avoidable. 

Nurse’s absence from the blue line will make issues robust for the Oilers. The veteran defenseman leads the Oilers with a mean ice time of 21:45 per sport and has contributed two factors (one aim, one help) within the first-round sequence.

Edmonton can be getting ready to elimination after L.A. rallied for a 5-4 time beyond regulation victory on Tuesday and took a 3-2 sequence lead. Puck drop for Game 6 in L.A. is scheduled for 10 p.m. ET on Thursday.
