Boston's Brad Marchand will have a hearing with Brendan Shanahan and the Department of Player Safety Monday.

The hearing concerns a hit Marchand delivered on Sami Salo late in the second period of the Bruins' loss to Vancouver Saturday afternoon. During the hit, Marchand collided with Salo's knee area and caused him to land hard onto the ice. Salo did not return to the game.

Marchand was assessed a five-minute major for clipping and a game misconduct on the play.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
