NEW YORK, N.Y. - Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski will face a disciplinary hearing with the NHL on Monday amid biting allegations.

Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty said Grabovski bit him during a fight at 11:30 of the third period in Toronto's 6-0 victory over Montreal on Saturday.

Grabovski faces a hearing with the league's department of player safety, which was initially scheduled for Sunday afternoon but rescheduled to Monday morning.

Pacioretty emerged from the incident showing his wrist to the officials, claiming that Grabovski bit him.

Quote of the Day
