Zdeno Chara will not be questioned by Montreal police while the Bruins are in Canada for their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.

Montreal police spokesman Ian Lafreniere also told the Montreal Gazette that the department is still investigating the hit.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told that he is not concerned about the scrutiny Chara, the Bruins’ captain, will face in the series, and he does not expect any safety issues to arise.

“I expect there to be obviously a heightened sense of emotion from the media, from the fans, from just people walking around the city,” Chiarelli said. “I don’t anticipate any security concerns. I think it’s going to be—you’ve seen how emotional it gets up there so I think it’s going to be, I think there will be a bit of frenzy. So we’re preparing for it and whatever happens, we’ll deal with it.”

The teams’ Eastern Conference quarterfinal series begins Thursday night in Boston.
