Dallas Stars defenseman Mark Fistric will have a disciplinary hearing Tuesday stemming from his hit Saturday on New York Islanders forward Nino Niederreiter.

At 6:08 of the first period, Niederreiter was carrying the puck along the boards in the neutral zone when Fistric stepped up and hit Niederreiter into the boards.

Fistric was given a two-minute minor for roughing.

The Stars next play Thursday in San Jose.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
