Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety Monday afternoon following his elbowing major on Florida's Tomas Kopecky in Sunday's game.

The play in question occurred at 5:38 of the third period of Detroit's 2-1 shootout win over the Panthers. Quincey receieved a five-minute elbowing major and a game misconduct on the play.
