TSN.CA -- Hockey Canada was informed by the International Ice Hockey Federation on Monday that defenceman Mathew Dumba will not be disciplined further for kneeing forward Erik Karlsson during Team Canada's 3-0 loss to Sweden in a pre-tournament game for the World Junior Hockey Championship.
Dumba was given a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for the incident.
Any suspension would have been a blow to Canada's defence, which already has Griffin Reinhart serving a three-game suspension once the World Junior tournament begins on Boxing Day.
