Carcillo to have hearing with Dept. Player Safety
Dan Carcillo will have a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Wednesday afternoon regarding his hit on Edmonton's Tom Gilbert on Monday night.
Chicago Blackhawks forward Dan Carcillo has been suspended indefinitely pending a hearing with the Department of Player Safety regarding his hit on Edmonton's Tom Gilbert on Monday night.

SOG: 27 | +/-: 10
The incident in question occurred during the second period when Carcillo and Gilbert were chasing a puck into the Oilers' zone and Carcillo checked Gilbert into the boards. Gilbert was injured on the play and is expected to miss Tuesday night's game against Buffalo with a lower-body injury. Carcillo, who will have his hearing Wednesday afternoon, also appeared to be hurt on the play.

Carcillo was assessed a five-minute boarding penalty and a game misconduct for the hit. The Oilers would score twice on the ensuing power play en route to a 4-3 win.

The Blackhawks signed Carcillo this offseason to a one-year free agent contract worth $775,000. This season he has 2 goals and 9 assists in 28 games played.

Carcillo, who was offered an in-person hearing, has already been suspended previously this season.
Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
