Anaheim's Perry faces hearing for hit on Wild's Zucker
Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry faces a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Wednesday afternoon for a hit on the Wild's Jason Zucker.

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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
