Penguins Cooke cleared in collision which led to injury

Penguins left winger Matt Cooke will not face discipline from the NHL for an incident which resulted in an injury to an Ottawa player in the Penguins 4-2 victory over the Senators Wednesday night.

Cooke stepped on the back of the left leg of Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson late in the second period of the game at Consol Energy Center, slicing Karlsson's Achilles tendon.

The injury will be repaired surgically and there is no timetable for his return.

Cooke was not penalized on the play.
