Florida Panthers forward Eric Selleck faces a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Wednesday afternoon.

The following grounds for potential supplemental discipline are being considered: leaving the players' bench on a legal line change for the purpose of starting or joining an altercation (Rule 70.2). The incident occurred at the 17:02 mark of the third period during a game Tuesday night against the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena.

In addition, Selleck was assessed a two-minute minor for instigating plus a five-minute major for fighting and game misconduct under Rule 46.12 (Instigator in Final Five Minutes of Regulation Time [or Anytime in Overtime]) and has received an automatic one-game suspension.

Florida won the game, 4-1.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
