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.
You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
