Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry faces a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Wednesday afternoon.

Perry was assessed a five-minute major for interference and a game misconduct at the 4:21 mark of the second period for a hit on Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker during a game Tuesday night at Excel Energy Center. Zucker was injured on the play and did not return to the game.

Potential illegal check to the head and/or interference infractions are the grounds for the hearing.

Anaheim won the game, 2-1.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
