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.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
