The man who knocked out Eagles TE Dallas Goedert last year is breathing easier today … he was just sentenced for the punch, but received nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
A South Dakota court official tells TMZ Sports … Kyle Hadala – the 30-year-old who rocked Goedert’s face at a bar in June 2020 — pleaded guilty to misdemeanor simple assault earlier this month and was sentenced that same day.
His punishment, though, was light — considering he was facing up to 1 year in jail and a potential $2,000 fine.
According to the court official, Hadala was sentenced to 60 days in jail … but if he keeps his nose clean for the next year, he won’t have to spend a single day behind bars.
We’re told Hadala also had to pay court costs and fines that totaled $336.50. He was ordered to have no contact with Goedert for 1 year as well.
As we previously reported, Hadala punched Goedert on June 19 at Zoo Bar in Aberdeen, SD … after he says Dallas threatened one of his friends during a night out drinking.
Sources close to Dallas — who had to go to the hospital after the punch but was NOT seriously hurt — tell us the 26-year-old was simply trying to play peacemaker before he was KO’d.
Goedert ended up putting the situation behind him months later during the 2020 season … playing in 11 games and recording 524 receiving yards and 3 TDs.
