Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano faces a fine hearing with the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety Tuesday evening for a slew-footing incident in a game Sunday against the Dallas Stars.
Giordano was assessed a tripping penalty against Antoine Roussel at the 11:53 mark of the second period in that game.
The Flames defeated the Stars, 4-3.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, any fine that could exceed $5,000 requires a hearing.
They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
