Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Rostislav Klesla will have a hearing on Sunday afternoon with the National Hockey League following an incident in Friday's 1-0 victory at Nashville.

Klesla was penalized in the first period for boarding Predators forward Matt Halischuk right in front of the Coyotes' bench. Replay showed Klesla appeared to grab Halischuk's jersey before pushing him into the boards. Halischuk went to the locker room briefly but was able to return.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
