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.
The last time I did it was 1994 and surprise, 20 years later it’s still working. I don’t do it very much, though. I don’t think I had it. I’m kind of surprised. It was probably because I went to church before the game.
