Kassian received a double-roughing minor and 10-minute misconduct on the play, which sparked frenzied debate on social media about predatory hits and retaliatory justice in the National Hockey League.
Kassian had a hearing with the league earlier on Monday.
Kassian took offense to a hit from Tkachuk late in the second period and threw off his gloves and started punching the Flames forward, also tossing Tkachuk to the ice twice. The Pacific Division is slated to have seven forwards on hand, including Edmonton's Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl along with Calgary's Matthew Tkachuk.

The most recent matchup in the ongoing Battle of Alberta ended with the Flames taking a close one-goal game and, oddly, Calgary fans launching a GoFundMe page to further press their victory.
"People don't do that to me or my teammates when I'm out there", he said. "If the league is saying it's clean I can do exactly that".
"I don't like the hits. But it got really big really fast", Elsaghir said. Anybody who's been in the game a long time knows they're predatory hits.
The billboards should be up in time for the marquee rematch on January 29 - the game when Kassian is to return from a two-game suspension handed down by the league for pummelling Tkachuk, who refused to drop his gloves. "But if you're going to play big boy hockey, you've got to answer the bell every once in awhile".
