Paquette to have NHL Player Safety hearing for actions in Canadiens game

Cedric Paquette will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday.

The Montreal Canadiens forward is facing discipline for boarding Anaheim Ducks center Trevor Zegras.

The incident occurred at 10:17 of the first period of the Ducks’ 4-2 win at Honda Center in Anaheim on Sunday. Paquette received a major penalty for boarding, a game misconduct and a coincidental minor for roughing Ducks forward Sonny Milano. Zegras missed the remainder of the period but returned for the second.

The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: boarding. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.
