Colorado Avalanche left wing Cody McLeod will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday at the League's New York offices after a boarding incident during a game Thursday' against the Detroit Red Wings at Pepsi Center.
McLeod was offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing as required by provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for any suspension that can exceed five games.
At 2:13 of the first period, McLeod was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for boarding Detroit's Niklas Kronwall.
Kronwall remained down and was taken from the ice on a stretcher. He did not return. After the game, the Red Wings announced Kronwall sustained a concussion and cuts to his right ear.
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.
Detroit won the game 4-2.
