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.
Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
