Flames' Giordano faces fine hearing

Tuesday, 02.19.2013 / 9:28 AM NHL.com

Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano faces a fine hearing with the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety Tuesday evening for a slew-footing incident in a game Sunday against the Dallas Stars.

Giordano was assessed a tripping penalty against Antoine Roussel at the 11:53 mark of the second period in that game.

The Flames defeated the Stars, 4-3.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, any fine that could exceed $5,000 requires a hearing.
