Pens' Asham escapes suspension for sleeper taunt Add to ...

Arron Asham will not be disciplined for his actions against the Washington Capitals, NHL spokesman John Dellapina told the Washington Times.

Asham belted Washington C Jay Beagle with a wicked right hand during a fight, leaving Beagle momentarily motionless on the ice.

Moments after the knockout, Asham waved his arms in “knockout” motion and then put his hands to his head in a motion that illustrated Asham “putting Beagle to sleep.”
