Svechnikov did not return and is not expected to play in Thursday's Game 4, Hurricanes coach Rob Brind'Amour announced Tuesday.

During the first period in Game 3 of the opening round series between the Washington Capitals and the Carolina Hurricanes, Washington's Alex Ovechkin threw down with Andrei Svechnikov of Carolina.

The defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Washington Capitals, are now in their first round matchup against the Carolina Hurricanes. Ovechkin made quick work of Svechnikov, landing three clean punches right in his face. Brind'Amour told the outlet that Svechnikov has undergone concussion protocols, and that he seems to be doing a lot better. Gloves were dropped at the ninth minute after 19-year-old Svechnikov apparently provoked the captain of the Washington Capitals to lose his temper.

Washington leads the series, 2-1.

"First of all I hope he's okay", Ovechkin said.

Trump owns a dozen golf courses in the USA and frequently spends his weekends at his clubs in Florida, Virginia or New Jersey. It captured the attention of the country, and he'll be rewarded with a Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Speaking to USA media, Svechnikov said: "It's just an honour to have met with him". And the first Russian fight in more than 20 years.

Capitals stars not on the ice banged their sticks against the barrier in support of their fearless leader, who was taken to the penalty box while Svechnikov lay on the ice in a daze. "If that's the case, it's a little different. He has a special bond with our group, with me too", Brind'Amour said. If you watch the video, he slashes him twice - Ovi, whack, whack - then Svech gets him back.

"So, it's a little but frustrating, because he got hurt. I'll just leave it at that".

Ovechkin won his record eighth Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy this season as the league's top goal scorer.
