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.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
