Toronto's Mikhail Grabovski (84) got into a scrum with three Canadiens, including Max Pacioretty (67).

MONTREAL (AP) -- The NHL will not suspend Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski for allegedly biting an opposing player in Saturday's game against Montreal.

The league said Monday there was no conclusive evidence that Grabovski bit Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty.

MUIR: Did Grabovski bite Pacioretty?

Pacioretty says he got a precautionary tetanus shot after the incident in Toronto's 6-0 victory. The forward emerged from the skirmish showing his arm to the officials and claiming that Grabovski bit him.

During the third-period melee, Pacioretty wrapped an arm around Grabovski's face from behind.

Grabovski received a 10-minute misconduct and a roughing minor after the scuffle. Pacioretty was also issued a 10-minute misconduct.
