Columbus Blue Jackets forward Pierre-Luc Dubois will not receive any supplementary discipline for his hit on Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Muzzin in Tuesday's game, according to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.

The league "views the hit as a freak play that had a terrible outcome," Johnston added.

Late in the third period of Game 2 of the teams' qualifying-round series, Dubois cross-checked Muzzin behind the Toronto net, which caused the defenseman to fall and hit his head on the leg of Columbus forward Oliver Bjorkstrand.

Muzzin laid on the ice for several minutes, seemingly alert, before he was eventually stretchered off and taken to a hospital in Toronto. The Maple Leafs confirmed later Tuesday night that he was alert and able to move all his limbs.

Game 3 of the series is set for Thursday at 8 p.m. ET.
