Klesla hearing set for Sunday
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.

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 was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
