Canucks' Edler faces hearing
Vancouver D Alexander Edler will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for an incident against San Jose Thursday night.

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety Friday for an incident against the San Jose Sharks Thursday night at Rogers Arena.

At approximately 19:46 of the second period, Edler collied with Sharks forward Tomas Hertl near the Vancouver bench, resulting in Hertl losing his helmet. There was no penalty called on the play and Hertl skated a regular shift in the third period.

The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: illegal check to the head. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.

San Jose won the game, 4-1.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.
