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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
