Torey Krug won't be suspended

The league has no problem with Krug's big hit.

From the great Chris Johnston:

I think the league made the right call here. Krug was committed to the hit before Shaw ducked, and really couldn't do much to avoid the hit other than simply let Shaw go by.

Also, Krug didn't really drive upward through the head. Helping Krug's cause was the fact that Shaw returned to the game.

In any case, Krug is a free man.
