Kevin Porter of the Colorado Avalanche will have a hearing with the NHL on Thursday concerning a kneeing infraction in Tuesday night's game at Vancouver.
Porter was assessed a kneeing major and a game misconduct at 10:55 of the first period for a knee-on-knee collision with Vancouver's David Booth, who left the game and did not return. The Canucks said Wednesday that Booth is expected to miss four to six weeks with a sprained MCL.
Very happy that old guy finally scored. It was great. You see the excitement on his face. I remember when I scored my first goal and it's just such a great feeling. Anytime you can help contribute to a team win it's a lot of fun.
