The linesman, Dan Kelly, who had pushed Bunting, has been promoted to a full-time position by the NHL.

"Congrats to NHL linesman Dan Kelly - one of three NHL officials promoted to full-time status for the upcoming season"

"The guy who played against Michael Bunting in the AHL and pushed him down the tunnel as a linesman last season."


We hope that with his new full-time role, Kelly will grow and improve to prevent similar incidents in the future.
