Rasmussen to have Player Safety hearing for actions in Red Wings game

Michael Rasmussen will have a phone hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday.

The Detroit Red Wings forward is facing discipline for high-sticking Boston Bruins center David Krejci on Thursday.

The incident occurred along the wall in the Bruins zone at 8:30 of the second period of Boston’s 5-1 win at TD Garden. Rasmussen received a minor penalty on the play. Krejci left the game with an upper-body injury and did not return.

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